Energy usage in the industries of manufacturing, iron, steel, chemical, and petrochemical is high and fossil-fuel focused. In response, governments and businesses are beginning to set targets to reduce those carbon emissions and commit to sustainable energy solutions. To become carbon neutral by 2050, the industry will need to undergo a massive transformation.
Defossilization is essential for these industries, meaning companies will need to shift from standardised fossil fuels to alternative low-carbon energy sources to meet CO2 reduction targets. Decarbonisation will require technological advancement and expertise in specific use cases to establish new energy systems, alternative energy sources based on green electricity, and cleaner methods of sustainable energy distribution and transport.
TÜV SÜD supports partners during this transition and with the highest degree of transparency.
Global and tailored industry expertise
Our global network of experts bring interdisciplinary experience from various industries and specific projects. We understand the decarbonisation challenges of energy-intensive industries and the regional challenges of meeting specific regulations. We work in your region and our testing labs provide relevant insights for major industries.
Compliance and trust in green energy technologies
TÜV SÜD enables trust and transparency between new technology providers, NGOs, OEMs, and society. We provide safety and quality frameworks through certification, testing, and audit services for emerging decarbonisation technologies like low carbon technologies, renewable energy, and alternative fuel. In the areas of decarbonisation where no standard is currently available, we bring third-party and neutral expertise, similar to our project veriX.
