Energy generation and distribution – sustainable technologies for a better future
While fossil resources are in ever scarcer supply, demand for energy is growing – throughout the world. So how can we manage energy responsibly? And how can we develop renewable energy sources?
We work continuously on innovative solutions for the production, transportation, storage, and transformation of renewable and fossil energies.
In coke-oven technology thyssenkrupp is the number-one address when it comes to building new facilities and above all modernizing existing coking plants.
Wind energy is another key strength of thyssenkrupp. Our slewing bearings are the ideal choice for wind turbines. With our unique know-how we cater precisely to local requirements. Nine out of ten wind turbine manufacturers rely on thyssenkrupp components such as slewing bearings and rings. These components are also used in solar, tidal, and marine current power plants.
Electricity from renewable sources is fueling demand for energy storage systems . We are developing two technologies further: redox flow batteries and hydrogen electrolysis.
All this makes thyssenkrupp a valued and reliable partner to the energy generation and distribution industry.
