Each step brings us closer to our goal. And takes us further.

The future of energy management.


Trier, Kiel, Luedenscheid - ABB is working on the continuous development of sustainable, smart energy supply, smart buildings, smart transportation and smart industries.


Often in collaboration with local governments and citizens, ABB is bringing more and more digital technologies together and demonstrating new possibilities in the generation, use and production of energy for work, transportation and private life.


In Germany, for example, ABB played a key role in designing innovative projects and developed new energy management systems as part of this. The focus was on maintaining network reliability, coping with load requirements and ensuring maximum capacity utilization, often in volatile and decentralized markets.


Mannheim/ Germany:
ABB is supporting the local energy service supplier MVV in developing the "Benjamin Franklin Village" conversion site into a new city district for around 9,000 people. This includes developing the energy management concept for the entire area and equipping it with energy management systems.


Trier: An energy management system for a new residential district 
The system enables the city to integrate and digitalize numerous municipal facilities, including wind, solar and biomass power plants, combined heat and power plants, hydroelectric and waste water power plants, sewage gas plants, battery storage facilities and charging infrastructures for electric vehicles.


Kiel: Reduction of traffic-related CO2 emissions
ABB also supports the city of Kiel, which is expanding its electromobility capacity to reduce CO2 emissions from traffic and air pollution. To improve the stability of the planned supply network, intelligent energy storage systems are to be installed with a standardized information system that controls the flow of energy between the power grid and electric vehicles.


Luedenscheid: On the way to carbon neutral production

ABB optimized its production site in Luedenscheid with respect to energy costs and production that conserves resources. In addition to the OPTIMAX® Energy Management System and the solar park with its current total of 25 ABB inverters, further ABB technologies will be combined to form a comprehensive solution that increases efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.
