Addressing Global Challenges through Openness and Trust in Tech

Shenzhen, China – Huawei TrustInTech Summit 2021 was held online on Thursday, with the theme of “Global Collaboration for Shared Value.”

Leaders from across the globe attended the event, including Neil Bush, Chairman of the George H.W. Bush Foundation for US-China Relations, Pascal Lamy, Former Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), William Nordhaus, Winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Economics, H.E. Satvinder Singh, Deputy Secretary-General of the ASEAN Economic Community, Derrick Pitts, NASA Solar System Ambassador, and Hou Jinlong, Senior Vice President of Huawei and President of Huawei Digital Power.

Attendees discussed challenges we are facing in the global economy, environmental protection, livelihoods, technology innovation, and many other key areas, and called for concerted efforts from countries and industries to address these challenges.

Humanity has entered an era in which interests, fates, and futures are all closely intertwined. A whole-of-society approach is necessary to address the common threats and challenges facing the global community. Pascal Lamy pointed out that “We need to mitigate de-globalization, in order to avoid making this world a worse place.”

Satvinder Singh, in his speech, spoke highly of the important role of the private sector like Huawei in advancing inclusive and sustainable economic recovery in ASEAN and beyond. He also shared ASEAN’s development achievements and expressed willingness to cooperate across numerous areas, including economy and trade, transportation and materials, digital transformation, high-performance computing, and climate change.

Satvinder Singh called upon all sides to take action. “We should seize this opportunity to make our societal and economic recovery truly transformative by investing in solutions to the crisis that address social, environmental, and economic transitions needed by our society and the planet,” said the Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for ASEAN Economic Community.

Seeking common ground while setting aside differences and building trust is the way forward. Industry digitalization, particularly regarding technological innovation in areas like green power, will present new opportunities to all sectors worldwide and make the world a better place. Today, fighting climate change is a mission that is shared worldwide, with many countries having announced low-carbon pledges.

William Nordhaus said that governments should increase investment in low-carbon technologies and research. Hou Jinlong remarked, “Over the next 30 to 40 years, we will continue to see intelligence and low carbon gain traction. Going intelligent requires digital technologies, while decreasing our carbon footprint requires power electronics technologies. As these trends progress, the global energy industry will change from resource-dependent to technology-driven.”

Hou also expressed Huawei Digital Power’s commitment to integrating digital and power electronics technologies, developing clean power, and enabling energy digitalization. “By pursuing innovations in clean power generation, energy digitalization, transportation electrification, green ICT infrastructure, and integrated smart energy, we are working with global customers and partners to build low-carbon homes, factories, campuses, villages, and cities. This will support the shift from a low-carbon world to a zero-carbon world,” he said.

As of September 30, 2021, Huawei Digital Power has helped customers generate 443.5 billion kWh of green power and save 13.6 billion kWh of electricity. This is equivalent to reducing carbon emissions by 210 million tons and planting 290 million trees. In the Philippines, Huawei has worked together with big developers and local partners to build utility, Commercial &Industrial and residential Solar Power plants in the country.

Huawei Philippines also participanted the CEPSI 2021, which organized by the Association of Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia and the Western Pacific (AESIEAP) – the largest organization of power and industry companies in the region, shared thoughts and actions to promote sustainability and social inclusiveness in the region’s electricity industry.

Huawei Philippines joins CEPSI 2021 in Building a Low-Carbon Smart Society Through Digital Power

Huawei Philippines joined the Conference of the Electricity Power Supply Industry (CEPSI) this November 4, 2021. This event aims to bring forth thought leadership and action to promote sustainability and social inclusiveness in the region’s electricity industry. Dr. Fang Liangzhou, the Vice President and CMO of Huawei Digital Power, shared his view about how to build a low-carbon smart society through digital power.

Carbon neutrality has become a global consensus and mission. 44 countries have identified carbon-neutral timings, such as European Union in 2050 and China in 2060. I believe it is one of the biggest trends in the coming 30 to 40 years. It is not only a revolution in power production and consumption, but also an unprecedented opportunity of upgrading all industries, and bringing a comprehensive and profound revolution to our economy and society.

According to International Energy Agency (IEA), global carbon emissions mainly come from 3 industries: Electricity power, manufacturing, and transportation. Electricity power accounts for 40% of carbon emissions. And transportation accounts for 21% of carbon emissions.

“To achieve carbon neutrality, Power production needs to be low carbonized and Power consumption needs to be electrified”, Dr. Fang said in the keynote, “Huawei has deeply integrated digital technologies and power electronics technologies to create all-scenario low-carbon energy solutions, covering the whole energy flow from green power generation to efficient power consumption.”

According to his speech, Huawei’s PV solution can reduce LCOE (Levelized Cost Of Energy) by 7% and improve O&M efficiency by 50%. In commercial & industrial scenarios, Huawei PV solutions can help users achieve higher power generation and better power storage. In a residential scenario, the Huawei PV solution can be installed in different directions and can increase the power generation by up to 30% with intelligent optimization. Huawei also launched an off-grid integrated energy solution to replace diesel generators with PV, which can reduce power generation costs by more than 50%, achieving zero carbon emissions.

New energy sources are intermittent and random. They generate electricity when there is sun or wind, which is unstable energy and often depends on the weather. Therefore, solar energy and wind energy must be combined with energy storage to provide stable energy.

Dr.Fang mentioned the World’s Largest Energy Storage Project, which Huawei signed in Dubai last month with SEPCOIII for the Red Sea Project. The project will help Saudi Arabia build global clean energy and green economy center.

A few examples of Huawei’s all-scenario zero-carbon power generation solution.

The vision of Huawei Digital Power Company is to digitalize traditional energy and develop green energy, by integrating digital technologies and power electronics technologies, to drive the energy revolution for a better, greener future.

“Huawei Digital Power is to use bits to manage watts, use digital technologies to manage power electronics and equipment, and provide simplified, green, smart, and secure solutions for clean power generation, green ICT infrastructure, transportation electrification, and integrated smart energy. We will keep openness and work closely with our customers and partners to build a zero-carbon intelligent society.” Dr. Fang said.

With more than 10 years of experience in researching and developing energy storage systems, Huawei highly valued technology research and development and has been investing at least 10 % of revenue in R&D every year, with a total of $90 billion spent in R&D over the past decade.

Targeting carbon neutrality and clean energy, Huawei Digital power has helped customers generate 403.4 billion kWh of green electricity and save 12.4 billion kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to reducing carbon emissions by more than 200 million tons and planting 270 million trees. In the Philippines, Huawei has worked together with big developers and local partners to build utility, Commercial &Industrial, and residential Solar Power plants in the country.

Dr. Fang ended his speech by saying, “We are facing unprecedented opportunities for low-carbon society, and I firmly believe if we embrace globalization, mutual trust, open collaboration, we can seize the opportunities, and create a green and bright future together!”

The CEPSI 2021 was organized by the Association of Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia and the Western Pacific (AESIEAP) – the largest organization of power and industry companies in the region. With the theme: Energized Countries. Empowered Communities.

The event gathered thought leaders, experts, and professionals in the power and energy industry, serving as a platform for exchanging ideas and strengthening ties among industry players. And focused on Creating the greatest value and impact to communities; and Promoting sustainability and social inclusiveness in the region’s electricity industry.

The Philippines has engaged major technology companies in the region to actively speed up the adoption of several digital technologies in extending services to the public and to immerse the population, particularly young Filipinos in the digital realm, to improve their familiarity and raise broad-based skills in the use of modern and up-to-date digital technologies. For instance, in improving the Philippines’ telecommunications industry and infrastructure, Chinese technology and telecommunications companies such as Huawei have entered into joint venture arrangements and other forms of collaborations with domestic firms.”

“Innovation and development rely on a talent ecosystem. Huawei is prepared to work with its partners to build a talent development ecosystem conducive to innovation,” Huawei Senior Vice President and Board Member Catherine Chen noted during her opening remarks, “Huawei’s 20 years in the Asia Pacific have been a journey to find like-minded friends. Let’s work together to build an inclusive, innovative, and vibrant ecosystem, attract and cultivate more digital talent, and jointly promote the development and prosperity of the region.”

“Cultivating innovative ICT talent ecosystem is fundamental to the digital transformation. Leveraging shared innovations with win-win outcomes, we can harness the power of ICT skills to fly us into a digital future. Together with our partners, Huawei will invest $50 million in the next 5 years to develop 500,000 digital talents in the Asia Pacific region,” President of Huawei Asia Pacific Jeffery Liu announced in his keynote speech.

The commitment to bridge the digital talent gap in the Asia Pacific, in particular ASEAN, was further strengthened with the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding between ASEAN

Foundation and Huawei ASEAN Academy. The agreement highlights both entities’ readiness to implement ASEAN Seeds for the Future, which is a scaled-up version of Seeds for the Future, Huawei’s global CSR flagship initiative that has been providing world-class digital skills training for young people across the globe since 2008. Through ASEAN Seeds for the Future, ASEAN Foundation and Huawei ASEAN Academy strive to build the digital capacities of youth in the ten ASEAN Member States so that they can thrive in the era of the digital economy.

The ceremony was attended by Executive Director of ASEAN Foundation Dr. Yang Mee Eng and Vice President of Huawei Indonesia Albert Yang, and witnessed by Deputy Permanent Representative of the Philippines to ASEAN Elizabeth Te, Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Cambodia to ASEAN H.E. Amb. Yeap Samnang, Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for ASEAN Political Security Community H.E. Robert Matheus Michael Tene, Deputy Permanent Representative of the Republic of Singapore to ASEAN Tham Borg Tsien, and Huawei Asia Pacific Vice President Jay Chen.

The ASEAN Seeds for the Future will help contribute to achieving the objectives of ASEAN Digital Masterplan 2025, which are to increase the capacity of youth in the region to participate in the digital economy and to create a digitally inclusive society in ASEAN. The ASEAN Seeds for the Future is set to launch in early 2022, inviting youth aged 15 – 30 in ASEAN to immerse themselves in a virtual journey of capacity building on leadership and digital skills. In the Philippines, Seeds for the Future already covered 110 students over the past six years, in this year 2021, the project will cover more than 100 students.

“We are delighted to sign the memorandum of understanding with Huawei to implement ASEAN Seeds for the Future. It is my belief that this wonderful regional program will play an important part in bridging the digital talent gap in the region by equipping our ASEAN youth with essential skills that will enable them to thrive in the era of the digital economy. Our partnership with Huawei also signifies another important milestone for ASEAN in regards to bringing in committed partners from the private sector to contribute to youth development effort in ASEAN,” said Executive Director of ASEAN Foundation Dr. Yang Mee Eng.
