Hitachi is also actively involved in power generation systems using renewable forms of energy with the potential to be important sources of energy in the future. In the field of photovoltaic power generation, Hitachi not only supplies highly efficient equipment, it can also draw on the comprehensive capabilities of Hitachi to handle all aspects of megasolar power systems, from financing through to operation and maintenance.
These capabilities include its power system technologies and system integration know-how built up over many years. In the field of wind power generation, Hitachi supplies wind turbines that use a highly reliable downwind turbine configuration to achieve a high level of generation efficiency in mountainous regions. It is also working on further developments, including deployment in offshore wind farms and upsizing the technology.
