“Carbon neutrality” has become a buzzword of the times

Upstream and downstream of the industrial chain have released roadmaps for advancement

After entering 2021, with the recovery of the global economy and the increase in energy demand, global carbon emissions may further rise. As the international market pays more attention to environmental issues, “carbon neutrality” has gradually become one of the development goals of various industries. It is worthwhile. It should be noted that from a global perspective, domestic and foreign companies have successively launched policies related to carbon neutrality.

At the beginning of this year, Tencent announced the launch of its carbon neutrality plan and actively responded to China’s carbon neutrality goal. In fact, over the years, Tencent has used artificial intelligence and cloud computing to reduce carbon emissions in Tencent’s Binhai Building and data center. Energy saving technology has been iterated to T-Block 4.0 version.

At a press conference this spring, Apple announced that the company has achieved carbon neutrality in its operations since April 2020, and has pledged to achieve full carbon neutrality by 2030. It has also developed a ten-year climate plan blueprint, and will start from low-carbon design, Energy efficiency, renewable electricity, direct emission reduction, and carbon removal are five aspects to promote carbon neutrality plans.

In the following June, Baidu officially announced the goal of achieving carbon neutrality at the group’s operational level by 2030. It plans to refer to the scopes 1 and 2 of the “Greenhouse Gas Accounting System”, covering data centers, office buildings, carbon offsets, intelligent transportation, and intelligent cloud. , six aspects of the supply chain, and comprehensively build a scientific path to achieve the carbon neutrality goal by 2030.

Not only Tencent, Apple, Baidu, but also a series of domestic and foreign technology giants including Alibaba, Amazon, Microsoft, etc., and semiconductor companies in the upstream of the industrial chain have also issued commitments to carbon neutrality.

Honeywell pledged in April to become carbon neutral across all business operations and facilities by 2035. Committed to continuously promoting energy conservation and emission reduction through technological innovation and services, and promoting the development of China’s smart building industry in the direction of green, healthy, safe and efficient; As one of the world’s top ten semiconductor companies, Infineon has formulated It has a “binding emission reduction target”, which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 70% by 2025 compared with 2019; and achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.

In April of this year, ADI officially announced the advancement of the company’s climate strategy, committing to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050. As a world-renowned semiconductor manufacturer, STMicroelectronics has announced that it will achieve the carbon neutrality goal by 2027, and is expected to become a global semiconductor company that achieves the carbon neutrality goal early. ST’s comprehensive carbon neutrality plan covers the reduction of direct and indirect emissions, including product transportation, business travel and employee attendance.

Achieving carbon neutrality?

Optimizing energy structure + improving energy efficiency is the key!

As “carbon neutrality” has become the consensus of the world’s major economies and the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, further adjustment of the global energy use structure and the exchange of technological change and innovation for the long-term sustainable development of the global economy have become the focus of subsequent carbon emission reduction policies for various economic entities.

In order to better understand the fields and industries involved in carbon neutrality, let’s first sort out the main sources of carbon emissions. According to statistics from the World Resources Institute, China’s primary sources of carbon emissions include 42% of power generation and heating, 23% of manufacturing and construction, 9.7% of industrial production, and 7.5% of transportation. At the same time, slightly different from the situation in China, the main sources of global carbon emissions are electricity and heating at 30.4%, transportation at 16.2%, manufacturing at 12.4%, and agriculture at 11.8%.

In order to demonstrate that my country has taken the initiative to undertake the international responsibility for addressing climate change and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind as a major country, China announced as early as September 2020 that it will increase its nationally determined contribution, adopt more powerful policies and measures, and strive to reduce carbon dioxide emissions within Peak by 2030 and strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. Therefore, based on China’s basic national conditions and following the law of energy development, the fundamental way out for my country to achieve carbon neutrality is to focus on optimizing energy structure, improving energy efficiency, and strictly controlling fossil energy in the direction of clean energy production and electrification of energy consumption. To build a clean-dominated, electricity-centered modern energy system.

As mentioned earlier, the first-generation sodium-ion battery recently launched by CATL can be applied to various traffic electrification scenarios, especially in alpine regions, and can flexibly adapt to the application needs of all scenarios in the field of energy storage. In contrast to the more upstream semiconductor industry, behind the vigorous development of domestic new energy industries such as photovoltaics, new energy vehicles, and charging piles, the energy efficiency improvement brought by power semiconductors, especially third-generation semiconductors, is becoming an industry in the context of dual carbon. The key to power.

Committed to improving system energy efficiency

The third generation of semiconductors may become the mainstay of the green economy

As a content that has been written into China’s “14th Five-Year Plan”, the third-generation semiconductor has become a hot topic in the industry. The third-generation semiconductors represented by gallium nitride and silicon carbide have the advantages of high temperature resistance, high voltage resistance, high frequency, and high power. Compared with silicon devices, the energy loss can be reduced by more than 50%, and the equipment can be reduced by more than 75%. Volume is an important development direction to help society save energy and reduce emissions and achieve the goal of “carbon neutrality”. Under the trend of “carbon neutrality”, the third-generation semiconductor industry, which can improve energy conversion efficiency and can manage energy finely, is accelerating its development. It is supporting 5G infrastructure, new energy vehicle charging piles, UHV and rail in new infrastructure. The key core of the four major areas of transportation is expected to become the mainstay of the green economy.

As a company with a very high global market share in the field of power semiconductors, Infineon is a semiconductor company that provides energy efficiency solutions in the entire power industry chain and is committed to leveraging the potential and advantages of third-generation semiconductor technology. Its EasyPACK 1A/2A , 1B/2B IGBT power modules and SSO8 power devices are widely used in the fields of energy generation and energy storage, which can not only improve the power conversion efficiency, ensure the stability of the power grid, but also reduce the loss in the process of energy conversion and distribution, so that energy can be efficiently and widely used. It is used in many fields such as industrial drives, data centers, automobiles, and smart buildings to further improve the energy efficiency of the overall system in various links such as power generation, transmission, energy storage, and power consumption.

At present, China’s third-generation semiconductor companies have shifted from a small-batch R&D model to a large-scale commercial production model. Both technology and performance are stabilizing, and the overall market has maintained rapid growth. It is reported that in 2019, the market size of my country’s third-generation semiconductor devices reached 8.629 billion yuan, with a growth rate of 99.7%. By 2022, the market size of third-generation semiconductor devices will reach 60.821 billion yuan, with a growth rate of 78.4%, and the combination of third-generation semiconductors and industry applications is also deepening.

Wingtech’s wholly-owned subsidiary and global power semiconductor company – Nexperia has reached a cooperation with United Automotive Electronics Co., Ltd. (UAES), a leading company in the domestic automotive industry, in the field of power semiconductor gallium nitride, and will jointly promote the gallium nitride process Research and development and application of technology in the domestic automobile market.

However, the development and commercialization of the third-generation semiconductor gallium nitride has not been smooth sailing. Nano Micro Semiconductor once said that it has spent a lot of time and cost to launch the GaNFast gallium nitride power chip in the past seven years. In the field of electric mobility, as well as in the field of renewable energy such as solar energy, the advantages of gallium nitride are used to strive for the goal of carbon neutrality and even carbon net zero.

Of course, the development of third-generation semiconductors is only one of the driving forces for the semiconductor industry to practice “carbon peak” and “carbon neutrality”. In the context of the entire industry exploring carbon neutrality, a large number of institutions have already predicted its economic benefits. Although there are differences in the estimates of the total investment to achieve carbon neutrality, several institutions basically agree that its contribution to the average annual GDP growth rate of my country in the next 40 years will exceed 2%. There is no doubt that carbon peaking and carbon neutrality will become an important driving force for the sustainable development of my country’s economy in the future.
