Energy Solutions instead of Diesel & Turbo. The company of the MAN Group not only changes its name, but also extends its range of products and services . The global supplier of turbomachinery, large diesel and gas engines is expanding its portfolio with hybrid, storage and digital service technologies. In the future MAN Energy Solutions wants to expand sustainable technologies for shipping, energy production, and industrial production as a system and solution provider to its central revenue pillar. The strategic realignment is to be implemented by 2030.
MAN Energy Solutions sees great potential in Power-to-X technologies, with which renewable energy can be converted into synthetic fuels such as natural gas, but also into electrical energy from renewable sources and decentralized power plants. However, appropriate storage solutions are decisive for success. For this purpose, the company introduced the power storage solution ETES (Electro-Thermal Energy Storage) together with ABB Switzerland at the beginning of June 2018. This could supply entire districts with electricity, heating, and cooling.
