Cities and urban areas are at the core of society’s endeavour to become truly sustainable.
Therefore, providing tools and services for cities to enable them to tackle issues such as energy, reducing CO2 emissions, and the social wellbeing of the citizens is something all companies should strive for. Tieto is committed to building a more sustainable society, and we are not alone.
According to an African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.” In this spirit, this blog post is an open invitation for the whole energy ecosystem to innovate together with us at Wärtsilä.
We are committed to our vision towards a 100% renewable energy future and we want to work together around innovations to accelerate the transition towards renewable energy. We see business opportunities and we are confident that we, together with others, will revolutionize the global energy market.
Energy transition is also about reforming lifestyles and redesigning the energy market. This is not a job for the energy sector to do on its own. Building partnerships across sectors is crucial for creating impactful solutions for the 1.5 degree world.
It is hard to disagree that the whole energy system has to go through a holistic reform and it has to happen quicker than we have ever seen before.
