ABB Ability e-mesh solution for island utilities

Reliable power through locally available renewable energy sources, and reduced fossil fuel reliance

Many remote islands across the world don’t have access to reliable sources of electricity or aren’t connected to power grids at all. To produce electricity, these islands rely heavily on expensive fossil fuels that are uncertain and harmful to both the environment and community members.

Our ABB AbilityTM e-meshTM solution offers reliable microgrid and energy storage tailored to suit the ecological sensitivities of island economies.  The e-mesh solution helps island communities harness locally available resources to generate power and gives them the ability to manage and control these distributed energy resources.

ABB's unique microgrid and energy storage solutions ensure the highest possible renewable energy penetration into existing or isolated grids, reducing CO2 emissions as well as dependency on fossil fuel supplies.
