ABB's Energy Transition Equations

   

Strategic investments to reduce carbon emissions, waste and cost

 

Achieving net zero emissions by 2050 will require a complete transformation of the energy landscape. The world wants an energy revolution. They want a quick transition to a smarter, brighter, more sustainable future. 

 

ABB understands the urgency of this need. But we also know that the transition cannot happen overnight. 

 

Real progress will take a balanced approach with a journey mindset – strategic investments scaled over time, to reduce carbon emissions, waste and cost. The transition needs partners who enable the pathway with ROI, today and in the future. Partners who offer real solutions today and are willing to invest in needed innovation for our low carbon future.  

 

 

ABB -- your partner in a low carbon future

  

ABB can bring balance to this equation by enabling safe, smart and sustainable investment in our low carbon future. 

 

By combining the full power of our integrated automation, electrification and digitalization solutions, ABB will help you meet your commitments and maximize the value of your operational investments, while reducing carbon emissions, waste and cost, throughout the energy transition journey.

Spotlight: Offshore Energy

Oil companies operating offshore platforms can significantly lower carbon emissions during production by transitioning platforms towards more automated, and ultimately autonomous operations. What’s more, it reduces overall cost while keeping workers off the platform and out of harm’s way. This report models how Automation, electrification and digital technology can play an essential role and make a world of difference in reducing carbon emissions and cost while improving worker quality of life.

Read our new ABB Energy Transition Equation for Offshore Oil and Gas report to learn more about how technology enabling more autonomous operations can deliver emissions reductions, cost savings and safer work environments for offshore oil and gas operations.

Wastewater

As the world’s population continuously grows, we must make every drop of our most precious resource count. This includes wastewater. While effectively-recycled water can be re-used for industry or agriculture, its treatment is high in costs and energy consumption. Increasing energy efficiency will be essential to striking a better balance. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest.

Offshore Energy

The Oil and Gas sector needs to strike a balance between meeting the global demands of a growing society and working towards a low carbon future. Transitioning platforms towards more automated and ultimately autonomous operations will significantly lower carbon emissions during production. This will also keep workers off the platform and out of harm’s way. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest.

Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is key to accelerating industrial decarbonization. But scaling hydrogen up to meet the energy needed while bringing costs down to make it viable is a huge task. Collaboration will be essential in achieving the necessary balance as we strive for a hydrogen economy. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest.

Chemicals & Refining

Materials, whether petrochemical or bio-based, are integral to today’s world. But production of these materials can be energy-, carbon- and resource-intense. However, there is a pathway toward low carbon production, reducing waste and increasing circularity – a pathway that can be accelerated with early involvement and true collaboration throughout the process. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest. 

 

Power Generation

Reliable and secure power supply is essential to protecting lives and livelihoods. This is not a small task today, with both long-and short-term energy sources uncertain. While we transition towards renewable energy sources, we have to balance today’s energy needs with those of a low carbon energy future. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest. 


Onshore Oil & Gas

Hydrocarbons will continue to play an important role in the energy mix for the foreseeable future, to meet the needs of a growing society. While we transition to greener sources, we must pull all levers to reduce the carbon footprint of the energy we consume today. A crucial step in the evolution towards a low carbon society is finding ways to reduce the energy needed through energy efficiency. Automation, electrification and digital technology will make a world of difference in this quest.
