Engines in mobile machinery – driving the economy
Do you think sufficient nutrition is a necessity? Do you wish to go to work on asphalted roads? Do you not want to live in a tent? Then you too are dependent on mobile machinery. For there is scarcely a single area of our lives that would function without mobile machinery.
Engines for generating electricity and heat
In vehicles, ships or as engines for stationary energy conversion, internal combustion engines have been used in millions of applications for over 100 years.
Ships – inconceivable without internal combustion engines
Whether for entertainment electronics from China, coffee from South America or vehicles from the US, global trade would not be possible without sea transport.
Low-Carbon Shipping: Where do we sail to with IMO's initial GHG reduction strategy?
28.05.2018 In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization of the United Nations (IMO) adopted it’s GHG reduction strategy. This strategy was subject of the workshop "Low-Carbon Shipping: Where do we sail to with IMO's initial GHG reduction strategy?" at the World Bank's Innovate4Climate conference in Frankfurt on May 25th, 2018.
The maritime energy transition – how can we achieve emissions-free shipping?
04.05.2018 In his talk on the maritime energy transition during the “Life Needs Power” energy forum at the Hannover Messe trade fair, Peter Müller-Baum – Managing Director of VDMA Engines and Systems – presented a roadmap for achieving a successful energy transition in the shipping sector.

The energy revolution and climate protection needs Power-to-X. The conversion of green electricity into storable gas or synthetic fuel is a key element in achiev-ing Germany's and Europe's energy policy goals.
Power-to-X is a central political issue regarding climate protection and energy system transformation. Politicians and the media are becoming increasingly involved in the discussion about this technology, as it currently offers the most promising approach, alongside battery electrics, to convert electricity generated from renewable sources into other forms of energy and thus turn away from fossil fuels in the long term.
