Are you shifting to green hydrogen?

Utility and industrial companies are facing heightened pressures to find new ways of harnessing the power of renewable energy. Power and water utilities, for example, are searching for opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint, and better leverage excess renewable power. Industrial companies are looking for approaches to decarbonize their processes, and minimize energy costs.

Forward-thinking organizations recognize that hydrogen is critical to both decarbonizing many industrial processes and harnessing the potential of excess renewable energy.

The challenge is effectively producing this green hydrogen. Companies must overcome the unpredictability of renewable energy sources, and the fact that hydrogen demand is detached from power generation, and beyond any company’s complete control.

Lack of operational experience with hydrogen plants is another challenge, particularly when facing pressure to keep the Levelized Cost of Hydrogen low enough to make hydrogen viable in the first place.

ABB’s unique portfolio of digital solutions for the green hydrogen industry is the key to meeting these challenges.

Speak with an expert

ABB offers a portfolio of digital solutions that helps companies increase efficiencies and maximize the total value of energy created and used by strategically directing energy flows and assets. We focus on both optimizing the cost of hydrogen while reducing the
carbon footprint of your plant.

This portfolio supports ABB’s automation and electrification solutions so that energy producers and industrial plants coordinate their assets, generation and production to optimize the total value of energy.

A complete digital portfolio

ABB helps industrial firms successfully move to green hydrogen by leveraging a software suite that optimizes coordination of assets, generation, and production so that companies optimize the total value of energy.

Our solutions help companies operate assets at optimized levels with individual characteristics, simulate and virtualize the best possible energy flows, forecast energy demand and supply (including renewables) and use adaptive control to achieve optimal results.

ABB helps you with every phase of project implementation: concept, liability studies, project engineering, conditioning, operating the plant and assimilation site, and digital twin after the plant is operating.
