The year is 2050 and the Paris climate agreement of 2016 is a distant memory but the world has responded dramatically to the existential threat of climate change.
As I sit here writing this blog, the electricity charging the battery in my tablet is 100 percent green and coming from my solar tiled roof. The national grid still exists but is fed from thousands of micro grids dotted around the country and coastline. These micro grids are no longer powered by the dirty leftovers from the dinosaur era but by solar, wind and wave generated energy and backed up by utility scale battery farms.
Our world is fully electric and a lot greener for it, thanks to the re-forestation of great parts of our green and pleasant land and micro farms growing edibles within the heart our lush urban sprawls.
Our electric economy is a connected infrastructure of smart buildings, electric vehicles and personal mobility on demand…
…Back in the present day, at Phoenix Contact we believe that this utopian world is actually closer than you think. We already supply connectivity solutions for solar, wind and wave energy generation. We are evolving technology for battery storage and battery swap applications. We are helping to electrify our transport infrastructure. We enable the connectivity of urban micro farms powered, not by the sun directly, but by highly efficient LED lighting. And we enable smart buildings to operate efficiently by connecting a multitude of sensors and control systems together.
With nearly 100 years of innovation behind us, we are embracing this new electrically powered industrial revolution. Our expertise is not just in the solutions we offer, but in the partnerships we have developed with our customers, helping them to find added value solutions for their designs.
