Alexandra Ervenich, Corporate Account Manager Water at Mitsubishi Electric, was one of the 15 members elected to sit on the GWP board for the next four years (2022-2026). The topics of “Water. Climate. Change.” also dominated the network’s traditional annual conference held on 6 July 2022. Due to the reorientation of climate policy, the German water industry is increasingly dealing with the problems of climate change, sustainability, digitalisation and the resulting need for innovation.
A podium discussion and various workshop sessions gave the attendees the opportunity to network with each other as well as with representatives from the worlds of politics, business and science.
Alexandra Ervenich explains: “Topics like reliability of supply, protection of resources and energy efficiency are currently the focus of our attention and are promoted by the GWP. In this, the latest digital technologies will make a significant contribution to climate and water protection." As a global player in the field of automation technology, Mitsubishi Electric has a long history of success in providing energy-efficient and sector-specific solutions for the water industry. In-house AI supports intelligent maintenance concepts, complex data analytics and process monitoring, thus making an important contribution to the achievement of climate targets.
