Chairman: Dr. Hamid Azimi
Dr. Rainer Kaesmaier is a Managing Director for the Global Product Group Semiconductors of Hitachi Energy, leading the semiconductor business with its global manufacturing and R&D footprint for the power semiconductor product portfolio which compromises GTOs, IGBTs, IGCTs, Thyristors, Diodes for market segments such as energy transmission & distribution, transportation & rail, renewable, industrial, and emobility. Rainer is a semiconductor industry veteran having held various management and executive positions in the sector for more than 25 years, covering areas of global responsibility in business strategy and development, business transformation, technology and engineering, operations and production, R&D, as well as sales and marketing. After stations at Siemens, Infineon, Qimonda, and the European semiconductor manufacturer LFoundry, he resumed in 2018 the responsibility for ABB’s semiconductor business which is now Hitachi Energy. He is also a member of the board for Hitachi Energy Switzerland. Rainer was a member in various industries strategy committees in Europe and the US. Rainer holds a masters degree in physics from the Technical University Munich and a PhD in physics from the University Kassel in Germany. He is based in Lenzburg near Zürich, Switzerland.
Our power electronics journey started in Switzerland over 100 years ago with the production of mercury-arc rectifiers. Today, we have one of the most diverse semiconductor portfolios that includes thyristors, diodes, GTOs, IGCTs, MOSFETs and IGBTs, which are manufactured at our own facilities in Lenzburg, Switzerland and Prague, Czech Republic. Our research team continues to push the boundaries of what is possible, using silicon (Si) and silicon carbide (SiC) technology to innovate the next generation of power electronics devices. Our advanced semiconductor technology brings unprecedented control to HVDC transmission systems. We are the heart of traction converters that drive high speed trains, metros and diesel-electric locomotives. Pumps, fans, roller tables, hoist and winches found throughout industry rely on us, and the world is able to enjoy greener mobility because we power the next generation of e-vehicles. We are Hitachi Energy – Semiconductors and with you we can shape the smarter, greener society of the future.
