A Leader and Innovator in the Energy Transition

Energy Transition

Providing an extensive range of proven, clean power production technologies

What is the Energy Transition?

The renewable energy transition is the ongoing change in how energy is produced which aims at reducing the reliance on fossil fuels by replacing with renewable energy. Energy transition laws and acts have been put into place to help slow and prevent climate change.


Because Earth's climate is changing and some alarming trends are being observed in overall global warming*:

  • From 1900 to 1980 a new temperature record was set on average every 13.5 years; from 1981–2019, a new record was set every 3 years.
  • Earth’s temperature has risen by 0.14° F (0.08° C) per decade since 1880, and the rate of warming over the past 40 years is more than twice that: 0.32° F (0.18° C) per decade since 1981.
  • The 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2005.

The long-lasting effects of global climate change are considered detrimental to our world’s ecosystem, which is why B&W is dedicated to providing clean power production technologies to support the energy transformation and our future.

But B&W's dedication to providing better and more sustainable ways to generate power is nothing new for us. We’ve been doing it for more than 155 years.

Transforming energy in a cleaner way

B&W has a long history of providing solutions as industry’s energy needs change. Whether developing an inherently safe water-tube boiler, to engineering the world’s first commercial supercritical pressure steam cycle unit, or advancing environmental technologies to control and reduce a wide range of emissions, we are constantly meeting the challenges of a changing energy landscape.

In each of these cases, and in many more like it, we have found ways to improve safety and efficiencies, while doing so with less environmental impact. Our ClimateBright suite of decarbonization technologies are a key component, though not an exclusive component, of meeting today’s energy transition requirements.

Our vast experience and expertise in providing clean power production solutions is wide and varied and includes technologies which have been around for decades and those which are much newer. But each contributes to incremental improvements which can make a positive impact on your decarbonization journey.

Proven, Clean Power Production

B&W’s extensive experience with clean power production technologies is comprised of both well-established technologies and solutions as well as continued research and development of the latest innovations designed to support industry’s low carbon initiatives and the energy transition.
