Clean Power, Clear Solutions
Energy sustainability is one of the biggest challenges facing the modern world.One in five people globally lacks electricity in their homes and businesses. Renewableenergies are clean, but only make up 20% of global electricity generation. Global energyrelated carbon dioxide emissions could rise by 20% by 2035.
But the main obstacle to energy sustainability isn’t technology or economics or regulations.It’s uncertainty. No two nations, no two markets, no two companies face exactly the samechallenges. And while these challenges are complex, the solutions don’t have to be.
We need to reduce the cost of electricity
Which is why we design and build competitive assets and extend their lifecycles.
We must lower the environmental footprint
Which is why we offer more ways than anyone else to generate electricity cleanly.
We should increase flexibility and reliability
So we provide balanced and dependable operations of power assets.

Alstom Grid is a world leading manufacturer of engineered solutions for smart and conventional electrical grid applications for utilities and industries. We provide integrated and customised turnkey solutions such as alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) substations, from medium (MV) up to ultra high (UHV) voltages, whatever the distance, the climate, the interconnection challenge, the diversity of power sources and the complexities of the local, regional or continental network.
The solutions developed by Alstom Grid enable the transmission of electricity as efficiently as possible and support the development of the Smart Grid: a real-time bi-directional network of energy and information which enhances the reliability and efficiency of the electrical grid.
Alstom also plays a leading role in Supergrid development, which connects renewable energy sources across countries and continents to supply clean energy to the final consumer.
Alstom’s technology is responsible for despatching more than 90% of the electricity generated throughout Australia and our products and services, including Transformers, Substations, Switchgear, Protection systems and Maintenance Services are integral to Australia’s energy
