Hitachi Press Release.
Hitachi Energy, a global technology leader that is advancing a sustainable energy future for all, announced today that it has enabled more than 150-gigawatts (GW) of high-voltage direct current (HVDC) links around the world integrated into the power system – sufficient to meet the peak power demand for Japan. The announcement follows the delivery of the first power from Dogger Bank, the world's largest offshore wind development, via the UK’s first-time use of HVDC technology on a wind farm.
The company has consistently expanded its capacity to meet accelerating demand driven by the clean energy transition. Since 2020, when Hitachi began its strategic investment, Hitachi Energy has increased its workforce by more than 8,000. Within the same period, the company also invested $3 billion in manufacturing and engineering footprint, and Research & Development (R&D), expanding collaboration and driving the company to become the strategic partner throughout the customers' entire life cycle.
"Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system and will help to drive the clean energy transition. Today’s announcement shows how we are enabling our customers to accelerate the development of the power grids that energy system requires"
