Powering the world with renewables
Huawei technologies are deployed at a large solar farm project in an arid section of Ningxia, China. The photovoltaic panels at the site provide shade while anchoring the top soil, making it possible to farm goji berries.
(Posted June 2022) One of the biggest changes happening in the world today is a rapid transition from centralized to decentralized power generation. Until now, most electricity has been generated in large facilities. Big dams, big nuclear power plants, big thermal power plants.
We’re transforming to a new model that involves sourcing power from a much wider variety of sources: Rooftop solar panels, large land-based and floating solar power farms, sea-based floating wind turbines, as well as from traditional power plants. By 2030, the International Renewable Energy Agency, IRENA, estimates that 42% of energy needs will be from renewables.
Huawei has deep engineering knowhow in solar power generation, storage, consumption, and management. This expertise partly derives from the company’s deployment of base stations at isolated sites worldwide that aren’t hooked up to the power grid. Huawei is also a leading designer of energy-efficient consumer devices such as smartphones and consumer wearables that are powered by lithium-ion batteries.
Huawei Digital Power, a subsidiary launched in 2021, works on projects everywhere to accelerate the world’s transition to energy sustainability.
