Siemens Energy is committed to empower their customers to meet the growing global demand for energy while transitioning to a more sustainable world. And in 2020, the company brought on one of its biggest advocates for change, CIO Kian Mossanen. “Our north star is to decarbonize the world for our kids and grandkids,” says Kian. To achieve this, he argues, requires collaboration and a constant desire to change and learn. “If we don’t, the solutions we bring into the organization will become obsolete in three to five years. We need to constantly look at the latest technology and latest cloud application, or software-as-a-service. It’s a question of being passionate about what we are doing, and eager to learn and to create a new future.”
With an ambitious pledge to become carbon neutral by 2030 and help accelerate its customers’ own sustainability journeys, Siemens Energy is innovating apace. The company is pursuing a transition to hydrogen and renewable energy sources and driving change by harnessing everything from drone technology to artificial intelligence.
We spoke to Kian about how he keeps his team inspired, and the importance of data in helping Siemens Energy achieve its goals.
