Mitsubishi Electric offers comprehensive solutions for power generation sector

The power generation industry is facing up to increasingly demanding challenges, driven by requirements for increased flexibility, greater efficiency and improved predictability.

Power generation sector

A picture of today’s power generation sector is an industry where outages need to be reduced, where increasingly stringent legislative targets must be met and where greater levels of renewables have to be integrated. This includes the recent update to the EU’s energy targets, which include a 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, a 20% share for renewable energy and a 20% improvement in energy efficiency, all by 2020.

A 2030 climate and energy framework then calls for even more action in the following decade, reducing greenhouse gases by 40%, creating a 27% share for renewables and achieving at least a 20% improvement in energy efficiency compared to those of 1990.

Effective control and automation holds the key to addressing these and other challenges within the power generation industry, and Mitsubishi Electric offers comprehensive solutions for the whole sector. That includes customers who are managing existing plants, constructing a new plant, upgrading an existing plant, or working to integrate and balance a number of different energy sources.
