Huawei Philippines joins CEPSI 2021 in Building a Low-Carbon Smart Society Through Digital Power

Huawei Philippines joined the Conference of the Electricity Power Supply Industry (CEPSI) this November 4, 2021. This event aims to bring forth thought leadership and action to promote sustainability and social inclusiveness in the region’s electricity industry. Dr. Fang Liangzhou, the Vice President and CMO of Huawei Digital Power, shared his view about how to build a low-carbon smart society through digital power. 

Carbon neutrality has become a global consensus and mission. 44 countries have identified carbon-neutral timings, such as Europe Union in 2050 and China in 2060. I believe it is one of the biggest trends in the coming 30 to 40 years. It is not only a revolution in power production and consumption, but also an unprecedented opportunity of upgrading all industries, and bringing a comprehensive and profound revolution to our economy and society.

According to International Energy Agency (IEA), global carbon emissions mainly come from 3 industries: Electricity power, manufacture, and transportation. Electricity power accounts for 40% of carbon emissions. And transportation accounts for 21% of carbon emissions.
