Our ability to maintain existing levels of energy services for the next 25 to 50 years is seriously challenged. While carbon capture and renewable energy sources will be essential solutions over the long term, new power electronics technologies are another significant part of the conservation equation. They will yield improved efficiency by significantly reducing wasted energy throughout the entire energy ecosystem, from generation through transmission to consumption.

This paper explains how power electronics can provide efficient, intelligent and optimal use of energy resources, yielding a more secure, flexible and sustainable way of life. It describes how Infineon addresses the energy demands of various market segments using a wide array of these power electronic products, which cover the complete power and energy management cycle for all industrial applications.
