To limit the consequences of climate change and minimize global CO2 emissions, it is essential to expand the use of renewable energies. Whether for wind turbines, photovoltaic systems or solar thermal power plants, Pepperl+Fuchs offers the right industrial sensor technology for maximum efficiency. For example, rotary encoders, inclination sensors and proximity sensors ensure that photovoltaic modules catch as much sun as possible or that wind turbines are optimally aligned with the wind. Particularly robust and durable sensors by Pepperl+Fuchs easily withstand the demanding environmental conditions in these outdoor applications. Pepperl+Fuchs sensors also ensure maximum quality and efficient processes in the manufacture of battery storage systems.
The electrical energy generated in wind and solar plants not only replaces conventional electricity, but also serves as an energy source for the production of green hydrogen. This alternative energy carrier plays a significant role in the energy transition because it can replace fossil fuels in energy-intensive industries. As an expert in industrial sensor technology and explosion protection, Pepperl+Fuchs offers the appropriate products and solutions to ensure safe automated processes along the hydrogen value chain—whether in hydrogen transport, in industrial plants or at the hydrogen filling station.
