At the recently concluded Sustainable Energy & Technology Asia 2017 (SETA 2017) event, ABB participated and showcased its leading-edge electric vehicle (EV) charging technology. With a focus on the trend of hybrid and electric vehicle technology and themed “Towards A Low-Carbon Society”, the 3-day international conference, exhibition and networking took place at BITEC between March 8-10, 2017, in Bangkok.
ABB showcased a live demonstration of its EV charger, Terra 53 – a multi-standard DC charging station, a powerful line of single- and three-phase string inverters for photovoltaic (PV) systems installed in residential and commercial buildings, ABB-free@home® wireless which transforms a house into an intelligent home as well as microgrid solutions.
"SETA proved to be an important platform for ABB to engage with customers as it attracted many organizations from the EV, renewable energy and infrastructure industries under one roof", said Sirichote Singsa, manager of ABB’s Robotics and Motion division in Thailand. "Transportation can be one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions. Showcasing our innovative technologies in EV charging and overall commitment to sustainable energy is one small step taken in the direction of a low-carbon economy," he added.
A session on ‘Multi-EV charging station’ was presented by Tanawat Phenglao, Sales Engineer Supervisor, ABB in Thailand, during the conference. He highlighted the global market trend for electric vehicle charging stations and key car developments for EU, USA and APAC including ABB’s EV charging infrastructure that supports all EV charging standards as well as local and global technical support offered.
The world faces an unparalleled challenge - meeting growing global electricity demand with minimal environmental impact. As a competitive source of energy, solar is a key contributor to solving this challenge – especially as electricity costs rise and solar systems become increasingly economically viable. Technology advancements, such as those from ABB, mean that it has growing potential everywhere from homes to large-scale centralized generation plants and in cities to charge electric vehicles to remote locations to power a microgrid.
