Sustainable mobility

ABB is an international pioneering technology leader in developing and deploying energy-efficient products and systems that are transforming transportation in globally sustainable ways.

Sustainable transportation has a crucial role in the fight against climate change, because fossil-fuel-powered motor vehicles, trains and planes account for approximately one-quarter of the world’s energy consumption – and about the same proportion of global carbon-dioxide emissions. 

ABB has been innovating clean-transportation solutions since the late 19th century, when one of its predecessor companies began helping Switzerland use electric-train technologies to master the Alps. Continuing as innovator and provider of a wide range of products and solutions in sustainable electric mobility, ABB’s product portfolio includes charging technologies for electric cars, buses and trucks, as well as solutions for the electrification of ships, railways and cable cars. And with more than 7,000 DC fast charging stations installed in 60 countries, ABB is the global leader in connected DC fast charging technology.

 

Through its partnership with the Formula E electric-car racing organization, the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, ABB will help further refine the design and functionality of electric vehicles.
