Powering a Greener Tomorrow
Southeast Asia is a rapidly growing region with a growing energy demand. However, the region also relies heavily on fossil fuels, a major source of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Committed to decarbonisation, Hitachi is supporting Southeast Asia’s transition to a more flexible, sustainable, and secure energy future with the help of cutting-edge power generation and management solutions. Hitachi is also working to improve the efficiency of existing power grids.
Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest energy consumer, aims to boost renewable energy to 23% of the energy mix by 2025, up from 9.7% in 2016. Through the Nusa Penida Microgrid Project, Hitachi supported Indonesia’s energy transition by providing cleaner energy to 12,000 homes. As one of the nation’s G20 showcases in Bali, the microgrid project also addressed increased energy demand during the summit in 2022.
A Healthier Southeast Asia
Quality healthcare is the cornerstone of any thriving society. Southeast Asia faces healthcare challenges, such as a shortage of medical professionals, healthcare gaps in rural and underserved areas, and escalating healthcare costs. From advanced medical imaging equipment to digital health records and precision therapies, Hitachi ensures that high-quality healthcare is available to people across Southeast Asia.
Today, Cancer still stands as one of the leading cause of mortality in Singapore. Equipped with Hitachi's cutting-edge Proton Therapy, the Goh Cheng Liang Proton Therapy Centre that sits within the National Cancer Centre Singapore houses such gantries. This system employs Real-time image Gating for Proton Therapy (RGPT) to treat moving tumors and advanced spot scanning technology for precise irradiation of complex-shaped tumors. Hitachi continues to support patient-friendly, minimally invasive cancer treatments, contributing to the further development of cancer therapy.
Due to the region's rapid urbanisation and large population, transportation becomes a prominent concern. Hitachi collaborates with governments and industry stakeholders to improve transportation efficiency and reduce congestion. With next-generation trains and rail systems, Hitachi is reshaping the transportation sector, providing a glimpse of the future of Southeast Asia's mobility.
Bangkok was ranked the world's second most congested city in 2016. During The Bangkok Red Line Project, Hitachi and its partners delivered 25 trains to ease congestion and improve accessibility. This sustainable, eco-friendly solution benefits daily commuters while reducing the city's environmental footprint.
As concerns over water scarcity and pollution continue to mount globally, Southeast Asia grapples with water issues of significant severity. From state-of-the-art desalination plants to wastewater treatment systems and the development of resilient water infrastructure, Hitachi is championing water conservation and protection, safeguarding precious resources for tomorrow.
Metro Manila often experiences water shortages as 90% of its households rely on a single dam (Angat dam) for their water requirements. Hitachi's innovation now enables wastewater to be recycled into drinking water, easing the pressure on fresh water sources and thereby advancing water sustainability for Pasay City's residents. With a strong focus on technological innovation, Hitachi is dedicated to ensuring universal access to clean water.
