More than 1 billion people have no direct access to electrical energy, and consequently no access to education and communication. A great deal of catching up needs to be done here in expanding the electrical infrastructure. On top of this comes the mega trend of remodeling the existing power supply in terms of how it is provided, and making it carbon neutral and thus environmentally compatible.
In these times of transformation of the energy system and the sharp cut in conventional power generation, the Dornier Group has made it its task to develop innovative solutions using wind and sun to generate power. Among other things, we plan and implement photovoltaic systems on the water, so-called floating PV systems.
The mobility industry is set to change fundamentally as autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification of transport converge. The electric vehicle market is expanding rapidly and conservative forecasts predict a quarter of the world’s new production being made up of electrified vehicles (including hybrids) from as early as 2025. According to recent studies, a significant number of self-driving vehicles will be on the road by 2040 at the latest, while forecasts see the number of flight passengers per year more than doubling to over 8 billion worldwide.
Dismantling nuclear facilities, as well as dealing with radioactive waste and residual materials in order to treat them prior to clearance or final disposal, necessitates extensive know-how and compliance with a wide range of regulations. Time and again, this poses great challenges for operators of nuclear facilities.
Access to clean water is the basis for life, prosperity and growth. More than 2 billion people worldwide have no access to drinking water. We have made it our task to enable intelligent concepts for the treatment, storage and resource management of water, and can look back on a broad spectrum of successful projects in the water sector.
