Hitachi Energy presentation II: Measuring Transformer Life Cycle Impacts in Practice

Transformers are highly material-intensive and energy efficient devices with a long operational life-time. Taking a life-cycle perspective on their environmental impact is crucial to optimize the design of new transformers that contribute to advancing a more sustainable energy value chain and a sustainable energy future for all.

In this session, we are sharing insights from our life-cycle impact assessment tool by discussing the impact of different transformer design options on their environmental and economic (TCO) performance. We discuss the implications of these results on future design choices and emphasize the need for factoring the value of future carbon costs associated with operational losses for choosing an environmentally as well as economically optimized design.
