Sustainable power that matters

Join us in creating a sustainable future for energy and propulsion!

Preventing further global warming while ensuring prosperity, comfort, and economic wellbeing is a huge undertaking for everyone involved. Safeguarding tomorrow’s mobility and energy supplies in a carbon-neutral way will require conquering uncharted technical territory and going down new roads. At Rolls-Royce, we're rising to this challenge with a passion. We're exploring the use of sustainably produced fuels to power our traditional products and investing in innovative new products such as fuel cells to achieve a carbon-neutral future.  In 2050, we want to be climate-neutral – we have set this out in our sustainability program Net Zero at Power Systems.    

Sustainable fuels – delivering power and energy that's clean and green 

Green hydrogen – i.e. hydrogen from carbon-neutral production sources – is the key to this future. It can be used directly as a fuel for fuel cells or hydrogen engines, or as a basis for synthetic fuels such as e-methanol or e-diesel, that are produced using additional green energy.
We're addressing the entire hydrogen ecosystem – from production and storage of hydrogen to downstream processing and use in fuel cells or hydrogen-fueled combined heat and power plants. Our customers can rely on integrated mtu total solutions from a single provider.

Sustainable energy and propulsion solutions – also featuring combustion engines

Internal combustion engines running on fossil diesel or natural gas emit CO2, which increases the greenhouse effect in the atmosphere. But what if the CO2 emitted by the engines was taken out of the air beforehand? Operation of these engines would then be carbon-neutral (i.e. net zero). That's why, looking to the future, we're focusing on combustion engines powered by sustainable e-fuels or 2nd generation biofuels. In other words, when the engine is run on such fuel, the only things being released into the air are things that were previously taken out of it to make the fuel in the first place.  To use the engines as efficiently as possible, we also integrate them into complex hybrid drive systems and entire power generation networks. At the same time, we're developing fuel cell solutions in order to produce zero-emission electricity even more efficiently.

HVO makes the difference

Since 1 January 2023, it has been mandatory for commercial harbor craft operating in Californian waters to run on HVO instead of fossil diesel. The Golden Gate Ferrys in San Francico have been pioneering the use of HVO, also known as renewable diesel, since May 2019. A field report.

“HVO is our ‘first choice’ fuel for new installations”

Data centres can generate much less polluting emergency power at a stroke - if they rely on HVO as a fuel. Ben Pritchard, the new CEO of AVK, the UK's largest provider of emergency power solutions for data centres, explains how the use of HVO makes sense.
