To realize a carbon-neutral society while fulfilling the demand for global energy that supports economic development, We offer power generation solutions that support the decarbonization of thermal power generation and higher efficiency in industrial energy by effectively utilizing existing infrastructure.
Efforts towards a carbon neutral society
Expanding the use of renewable energy is indispensable for realizing a carbon-neutral society. Simultaneously maintaining economic efficiency and a stable power supply is also important.
As an effective short-term effort toward the energy transition, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group aims to deliver a carbon-neutral society in a fast and practical way while minimizing the investment and operating cost by utilizing existing infrastructure.
This is especially the case for the natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC), which emits the least amount of CO₂ compared to other thermal power plants. Growth of the renewable energy systems such as solar panels and wind turbines will undeniably contribute to decarbonization, however, due their intermittent nature, the power grids are becoming unreliable as they lose the dispatchable inertia with every added renewable power resource. GTCC will therefore continue to play a vital role as reliable, relatively low carbon and flexible power supply.
In addition to contributing to the decarbonization of thermal power generation through developing a highly efficient GTCC, MHI has started to offer solutions to increase its flexibility by adjoining the Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
Contributions spanning across the natural gas value chain
MHI Group offers a variety of solutions for both power generation and across the entire natural gas value chain, from production to transportation.
With our wide range of expertise and technologies, we will promote fast decarbonization that achieves a stable supply of energy and economic efficiency.
Improving product operations through digital technology
MHI Group is leading the development of the smart power plant of the future with TOMONI, a suite of intelligent solutions enabled by decades of O&M and plant knowledge. Our solutions use advanced analytics and are driven by customer collaboration to deliver powerful financial and environmental advantages.
We will continue to combine knowledge and technology obtained through the development of hardware with digital technology as it actively advances the transition to a carbon-neutral society and develops a range of products that will facilitate this energy transition.
Fuel Conversion : Reducing Environmental Impact of Power Generation
The global pursuit of the energy transition has generated strong demand for low-carbon and renewable fuel. Yet, thermal power plants still play an important role in maintaining stability of power supplies in many countries around the world. The environmental impact of thermal power plants must therefore be reduced, and Mitsubishi Power has a variety of solutions to do so, including biomass- and ammonia-firing technology as well as solutions to convert existing coal or oil-fired power plants to natural gas.
BESS (Battery Energy Storage System)
Amid an increased focus on renewable energy sources, BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) compensates for the durability limitations of these sources, providing essential value for operators who need to provide a stable electricity supply while increasing and maximizing their revenue.
“Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI)’ LNG Solution” combines the H-100 gas turbine, one of the world's largest and most efficient dual-shaft gas turbines, with advanced compressor technology to maximize the availability of LNG plants. Our highly efficient equipment for LNG plants can lead to a reduced environmental impact.
