Our vision

Towards a 100% renewable energy future

Towards a 100% renewable energy future

The energy landscape is in transition towards more flexible and sustainable energy systems. We envision a 100% renewable energy future.

Wärtsilä is at the forefront of the transition – we understand, design, build and serve optimal power systems for future generations.

Today we are far away from fully renewable energy systems. However, renewables are becoming the major energy source in many regions, pushing inflexible power generation out of the system. When renewables are not available, flexible engines and energy storage will provide the needed flexibility to balance renewables and secure reliability.

No one person or company alone can change the world overnight. No single, brilliant move will complete the game. It’s something we all need to do together.

Check out our video to see what energy system balancing and optimisation can mean in practice.

Creating your optimal path towards a 100% renewable energy system

We see that the transition to 100% renewable energy systems is set to accelerate at an eye-popping rate. No matter the region, the shift towards 100% renewable energy systems brings benefit to society – both economically and in terms of the climate. Careful planning of future energy systems will save billions in costs and drive rapid reduction of Co₂ emissions.

Wärtsilä can support in creating your most optimal power system towards a 100% renewable energy future.

Power system modelling

Discover what optimised, flexible systems look like

Every second that ticks by presents an opportunity for us to make the right decisions for a sustainable future. As we integrate more renewables into traditional baseload power systems, flexibility becomes essential. To ensure a continuous supply of electricity becomes a constant balancing act, where every second, minute, and hour counts.

How can regions worldwide reach net zero in an economically achievable way?

Our ‘Front-loading Net Zero’ report models cost-optimal pathways to 100% renewable power systems in different markets with vastly different socioeconomic dynamics, distinct energy systems, and challenges to overcome. 

The results show that the path is similar everywhere.

Redesigning energy markets

We stand at the precipice of a transformational shift in European electricity systems, as wind and solar become the dominant power source to achieve net zero. However, the transition cannot be delivered by renewables alone.
See our key recommendations for Europe's energy market redesign based on our power system modelling results.
