Wärtsilä part of expanded future energy coalition unveiling concrete actions for 2021

The Coalition for the Energy of the Future, of which technology group Wärtsilä was a founding member, has identified seven development projects for 2021. At the same time, the coalition welcomes three new corporate members, thereby expanding the original membership of 11 businesses to 14.
The projects to be worked on in cross-industry working groups during 2021 are; Green Hydrogen; New Biofuel for Maritime needs; Carbon-neutral LNG; Green Electricity; Zero Emissions; Digital Solutions; and Intermodal Green Hubs. The overall aim of the coalition is to define a clear pathway towards carbon neutrality.

“These projects are all areas that Wärtsilä is heavily involved in, and which align closely with the company’s Smart Marine and Smart Energy strategies. We fully support the aims of this initiative, and since collaboration is central to achieving real progress, we look forward to working closely with the other members for a cleaner and better future,” says Roger Holm, President, Wärtsilä Marine Power.

Launched in 2019 during the French Maritime Economy Conference, the programme has received the backing of French President Emmanuel Macron. The target is to achieve genuine technological breakthroughs with tangible results by 2030.

The three new members of the coalition are Airbus, Bureau Veritas, and PSA International. In addition to Wärtsilä, the original members are Amazon Web Services, Carrefour, CMA CGM Group, Cluster Maritime Francais, Crédit Agricole Corporate Investment Banking, Engie, Faurecia, Michelin, Schneider Electric, and Total.
