Product Innovation

We have built a legacy of innovation since our founding in 1911. Our first innovation, the Liquid Power Fuse, provided safer and more reliable protection, pioneered the adoption of outdoor distribution systems, and established safe electricity as foundational to everyday life. Today, that legacy of innovation continues to drive our business and aligns with our focus on sustainability in our growth ambition, particularly as the impacts of climate change become more frequent and severe. We work alongside customers to ensure they have the solutions they need now, and will need in the future, to deliver power efficiently, safely, and sustainably.

Sustainable Product Development

We continue to build on our legacy of innovation by undertaking ambitious efforts to create sustainable products that will decrease the energy industry’s reliance on greenhouse gases (GHG). Within our industry, the use of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas, a GHG with a high global warming potential, is one of the most important emission sources that must be addressed. S&C dedicates substantial R&D efforts to solutions that reduce or eliminate the use SF6, including hermetically sealed designs that prevent SF6 emissions, and to end-of-life services that have the ability to recapture and recycle up to 95% of SF6. Factoring sustainability into each step of our product-development process allows S&C to best support our customers as they tackle their own decarbonization goals.
