Shaping the energy and mobility transition

As part of its strategy, Rolls-Royce Power Systems wants to provide innovative answers to the major social and economic challenges of today and tomorrow – in the areas of mobility and logistics, infrastructure and energy. In these areas, regulatory requirements are becoming stricter and environmental standards are becoming increasingly complex in an international context.

Diesel drives will continue to be an established part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems' portfolio in the future. The aim is to further develop the technology and make diesel engines even cleaner and smarter. At the same time Rolls-Royce Power Systems is focusing on meeting the growing demand for electrified drive systems as well as alternative fuels and energy sources such as gas, hybrid and electric.

With its Green and High-Tech programme, Rolls-Royce Power Systems provides forward-looking answers to the growing challenges of the mobility and energy transition. As part of the programme, Rolls-Royce Power Systems has recently launched several groundbreaking innovations, including the first mobile gas engines of the MTU Series 4000, which are so clean that they can run in the Wadden Sea. From 2020, the company will offer fully integrated MTU hybrid ship drives for yachts, workboats, ferries and patrol boats in the power range from approximately 1,000 kilowatts to 4,000 kilowatts per drive train. In the MTU Hybrid Power Pack concept, Rolls-Royce Power Systems combines the advantages of battery and diesel trains and sets new standards on the railways through lower fuel consumption, better acceleration and lower exhaust and noise emissions.

With a view to the energy transition, Rolls-Royce Power Systems relies primarily on microgrids, i.e. autonomous energy supply systems that are efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly. Microgrids combine renewable energy with reliable power generators and are optimally tailored to the needs of industrial companies and municipalities. Rolls-Royce Power Systems is currently setting up a microgrid pilot plant in Friedrichshafen which simulates the operation of such a system for customers and can be designed to meet their specific requirements.
