Technical solutions for a livable future
The greatest challenges facing humanity – the fight against climate change and safeguarding sustainable development – can be met from a technical perspective by
the All Electric Society.
It is a world in which affordable electrical energy generated from renewable sources is available on a virtually unlimited basis as the main form of energy. The key to making this world a reality is the comprehensive electrification, networking, and automation of all sectors of the economy and infrastructure. Phoenix Contact is empowering industry and society to forge ahead with this transformation as we move toward a sustainable world.
This is the vision of the All Electric Society – a vision in which all of the major issues of our time are addressed. After all, carbon-neutral energy will be a key factor in allowing us to fight climate change while allowing for global prosperity. Phoenix Contact is on the front lines of this movement, empowering its partners and customers.
Climate change affects us all
At first glance, the two major issues that our society currently faces – the fight against climate change and the billions of people striving for prosperity and development – seem to be contradictory and irreconcilable. However, they can only be addressed simultaneously. The challenge is to permit consumption but protect the climate at the same time. Technical innovations will play a crucial role in tackling these issues. The goal: The world’s entire energy needs will be met through renewable sources.
Sustainable energy for sustainable growth
A report by the World Economic Forum Davos published in 2020 found that technology will play a critical role in achieving of 10 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). (Source: Unlocking Technology for the Global Goals). Around 70% of the sub-goals are directly supported by technical innovations. Goal number 7 – clean, affordable energy – is the key to realizing the All Electric Society. Today, many products and solutions from Phoenix Contact already offer initial answers to these future questions.
