Innovative solutions for e-mobility and smart city

Sustainable transport and buildings are also key contributors and enablers of decarbonization. For instance, fossil-fuel-powered vehicles account for roughly a quarter of the world’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while buildings are consuming about 40% of the world’s energy. ABB provides market leading electrification, automation and digital technologies to promote sustainable transport by electrifying vehicles and improving energy efficiency of the transport system. ABB’s broad portfolio for smart building and smart home is also reducing the environmental impact of buildings, and making cities and settlements safe, smart, comfortable and sustainable.
