We all depend on energy every day: in our private homes, in the office, in public and commercial buildings, in mobility and industrial production. Currently, the global energy sector is responsible for two thirds of greenhouse emissions worldwide. By 2030, there will be 8.5 billion people living on earth. Access to energy is being extended to all, the world economy continues to grow – and so will the need for energy.
We need powerful solutions to reach climate protection targets including net zero by 2050. Clean and efficient technologies are key to mastering this challenge. They can increase the world's energy efficiency – along the entire energy conversion chain. Semiconductors in particular are an integral part of these technologies across energy generation, transmission, storage and consumption. Semiconductors enable the intelligent and efficient use of energy.
Infineon attended the World's Energy Council's Humanising Energy series to talk about the human side of energy and how technological innovations made by humans can make a difference.
In this video two Infineon employees talk about their vision of sustainability, their personal engagement and the crucial role of microelectronics:
