In order to meet decarbonisation goals and limit the impacts of climate change, national power systems need to reach 100% renewable power generation in future. Renewables like solar and wind will be needed in vast amounts. To balance the intermittent nature of these renewable power sources, engine power plants and energy storage are ideal.

A 100% carbon neutral power system is realistically achievable for Chile by 2050, or even sooner, according to a Wartsila white paper. Chile has set some of the most ambitious decarbonization targets in the world. Read more →
In the very near future RE will become the baseload in power systems and flexibility will be the enabler. Without flexible power generation to balance the system, and provide critical power, significant RE penetration cannot be achieved and the savings that low cost RE promise will not be realized.

The global energy market is constantly evolving. Current market trends show the energy landscape is in transition towards more flexible energy systems with a rapidly increasing share of renewable energy, declining inflexible baseload generation and wider applications of storage technology.
