Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group delivers innovative and integrated solutions across a wide range of industries from commercial aviation and transportation to power plants and gas turbines, and from machinery and infrastructure to integrated defense and space systems. Last October, MHI group declared “MISSION NET ZERO”, with ambitious target to achieve carbon neutrality from its operations and through its entire value chain by 2040. To achieve such goal, MHI group is developing technologies and prompting business strategies on decarbonizing the energy supply infrastructure (Energy Transition), and on achieving energy/manpower saving for energy utilization process (Smart Infrastructure).
In this presentation, we introduce the R&D and open innovation schemes in our group, and our vision on building an innovative solutions ecosystem to realize a carbon neutral future. We hope to explore the collaboration chances with researchers of NUS, NTU and A*STAR, and with other members of Singapore Energy Centre, to co-develop the decarbonization technologies and business solutions which contribute to achieve a carbon neutral world.
