COMPETENCES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

COMPETENCES FOR A SUSTAINABLE
When we talk about the green shift or new tech solutions for addressing climate change, we assume, hope, and proclaim engineers and other STEM professionals as the custodians of our smooth transition towards sustainability and net-zero
emissions. But we are stuck in a paradox. On the one hand, politicians and industry are sounding the alarm about the catastrophic shortage of engineers, IT, and STEM talents to address the current and future challenges. On the other hand, it is
unclear what concrete competences and skills the industry needs to drive the green shift. Squeezed in between are the higher education institutions, racing against time to adapt curricula to match the skills provision with the skills demand.

Deeper waters, stronger winds

whitePaper | October 18, 2022

The world is faced with three global and interconnected crises: An energy crisis, led by supply disruption and skyrocketing costs of energy; a climate crisis, caused by our historic and current greenhouse gas emissions; and a biodiversity crisis, marked by habitat degradation and biodiversity loss. These megatrends influence and exacerbate each other, making it imperative to consider them together when developing effective responses.

Achieving Sustainable Data Center Growth

whitePaper | October 23, 2022

Data centers today are estimated to constitute nearly 2% of global energy consumption. The decade-old fear of runaway growth in data center energy consumption hasn’t occurred. Hyperscale cloud service providers (CSPs) have largely managed that concern, with the help of industry vendors, through IT virtualization and higher utilization of power and thermal management infrastructure. At the same time, enterprises, usually less efficient than CSPs at managing data centers, have transitioned many of their workloads and applications to the cloud.

The Hydrogen Economy

whitePaper | October 10, 2022

Climate change and geopolitical turmoil require a radical transformation of today’s fossil fuelbased economy into a renewable energy system. Electricity generation from wind and solar is subject to strong daily and seasonal fluctuations. The potential to produce green electricity also varies greatly geographically. In this context, hydrogen provides an optimal solution for bridging the gap between the volatile generation and the need to supply green energy on-demand across all sectors.

Toward a new energy system: A holistic view of how we can shape the energy transition together

whitePaper | April 4, 2022

Energy is the beginning of everything, the basis of civilizational development and the foundation of all economic progress. To make it future proof, we need a balance of affordability, reliability, and sustainability. This includes a phase-out of coal, the expansion of renewables, the further development of H₂-capable gas power plants and grid stability services, as well as storage solutions that step in when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. Together, these steps and technologies can ensureenergy security and make a decarbonized energy system possible.

Ecolabels and their role in mitigating climate change

whitePaper | October 11, 2022

The international type 1 ecolabelling schemes associated with the entire lifecycle of products and services had environmental and health attributes and has a significant role in mitigating climate change. Standards and criteria developed for ecolabels assist in setting the bar for manufactured products and services to limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduce climate change impacts. Climate change represents a continuing threat to humanity and the natural world. The current effects of anthropogenic climate change are far-reaching, from its effects on causing extreme weather to its impacts on natural ecosystems and human society
