The coming years will show breakthrough in technology advancements in the fields of Battery Storage, Carbon Capture Plants (CSS), Microgrids and Cloud Based Technologies will drive the evolution of an ecosystem to meet future energy challenges in the process and manufacturing industry.
There are multiple forces driving dramatic changes in all segments of the energy industry. Aging infrastructure, new regulations, distributed energy resources and the convergence of Information Technology and Operations Technology (IT/OT) are just a few.
The Evolution of the Ecosystem
Countries and municipalities are imposing regulatory restrictions on green gas emissions and renewable energy. Energy storage technologies are constantly improving and getting cheaper, and digital technologies are making all the energy systems safer, more reliable, and easier to operate and control. And most importantly increasing the efficiency and reducing losses.
On the other hand, manufacturers, large facility operators, transportation, and other industries are increasingly recognizing that all of these changes make it economically viable to develop local energy capabilities- whether they are local generation capacity only or also storage.
Changing energy ecosystems relies on smart hardware & software to deliver on its promise: make energy green, affordable, and safe. ABB Ability™ solutions make it possible through a set of tools that:
Our experience with these types of systems (not only at large power utility companies but also on the smallest microgrids and power installations at factories, buildings, and for transportation solutions) gives us the most comprehensive insights into your needs.
We use the data generated through decades of designing, building, monitoring, maintaining and operating these systems to make smarter and more efficient solutions.
