The use of renewable energy protects the environment and takes both society and industry closer to the goal of achieving sustainability. However, compared to conventional energy sources, there are certain challenges that stand in the way of its rapid adoption, such as higher production costs and greater instability in the supply of power to the grid. As a leading company in the control and instrumentation business, Yokogawa has always striven to help its customers in various industries achieve stable operations and improve productivity in their plants. Based on our VigilantPlant concept for attaining operational excellence, we are providing solutions that pave the way to the use of renewable energy sources.
Concept
Knowledge and Expertise
We have a long track record in working as a main automation contractor (MAC) in large projects for the power, oil, chemical, and other industries, and our knowledge and expertise in these fields is second to none. Our solutions have made it possible for our customers to operate their plants safely, stably, and efficiently.
Measurement and Control Technology
Yokogawa released the world’s first distributed production control system (DCS) in 1975. This technology helps plants operate more efficiently and reduce their energy consumption.
Information and Communication Technology
DCS and other industrial automation (IA) systems are widely used all over the world today and are increasingly interconnected as a result of the development and introduction of information and communication technology (ICT). The combined use of measurement and control technologies with ICT is contributing to the realization of a recycling-based society that is more in harmony with nature.

Our Contribution to the Renewable Energy Field

Yokogawa systems and products have been installed in renewable energy facilities all over the world. Based on the deep knowledge of the industrial automation market that we have gained through the provision of plant information management, operation/monitoring, management/maintenance, field control, sensing, analysis, and other technologies to the oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, power, and other energy-related industries, we are able to provide solutions that are making a key contribution in the renewable energy field.

Developing Tomorrow’s Technologies

Next-generation renewable energy technologies, particularly decentralized energy systems, will play an important role in the achievement of sustainable communities, and their rollout is to be anticipated in a variety of industries. Yokogawa is actively engaged in the development of a next-generation renewable energy business, which includes the direct use of heat generated by concentrated solar power, the stable generation of power for communities through the use of ocean thermal energy conversion, and the introduction of chemicals and fuels produced from marine biomass.
