No energy transition without steel
A climate-neutral society is unimaginable without steel. Many products and industries are reliant on steel to achieve technical progress and reduce their carbon footprint. “No energy transition without steel” is the motto: Wind turbines, for example, are up to 80 percent steel, while electrical steel serves as a basic component in efficient electric motors, generators, and smart power grids.
To look at it another way: No climate-neutral steelmaking without clean energy. This shows how important it is to take a holistic approach to the issue of climate protection and how closely industry and the energy transition are interlinked.
We need steel to achieve the ambitious climate targets. To secure its future in a climate-neutral society, the way it is produced will be revolutionized over the next three decades. With tkH2Steel, thyssenkrupp has already made a start on this.
