Ensuring access to reliable and sustainable energy anytime, anywhere
Almost one billion people1 in remote areas around the world either don’t have access to reliable sources of electricity or aren’t connected to power grids. To generate electricity in remote communities that are not serviced by electrical networks, fossil fuels generators burn diesel, gas or heavy fuel oil. These fuels are expensive and uncertain due to challenges in availability and transportation. With electricity being a basic parameter for citizen welfare and economic activity, governments around the world are investing in infrastructure to provide efficient, low cost and clean electricity to poorly-connected areas.
Our ABB AbilityTM e-meshTM solution offers reliable microgrid and energy storage for remote communities. The e-mesh solution helps remote 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 highest possible renewable energy penetration into existing or isolated grids, reducing CO2 emissions as well as dependency on fossil fuel supplies.
