KEY Sustainability Challenge

Energy Transition

While emerging technologies need acceleration, investment, and consolidation to help in the long-term, the most effective way to future-proof infrastructure right now is through quick wins with existing, low-cost, and mature technologies. For example, optimizing construction design for reduced materials and using digital twins for clean energy transition.

What's the Challenge? Energy mix and grid flexibility requirements.

Energy transition refers to the global energy sector's shift from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption — including oil, natural gas and coal — to renewable energy sources like wind and solar, as well as lithium-ion batteries.

We recognize that the growing threat of climate change requires rapid, unprecedented transformation. Creating future-proofed infrastructure will play a key role in protecting the environment.

At Bentley, our vision is influenced by the unprecedented transformation that will need to happen in the upcoming years to achieve sustainable development goals and future-proof the world’s infrastructure. Infrastructure digital twin solutions will be an essential enabler and accelerator in this journey. Infrastructure digital twin solutions and sustainable development go hand in hand. We will continue to shape our ES(D)G solutions and enhance our environmental handprint to help address this critical challenge.
