ABB launches flexible microgrid solution to boost use of renewables

ABB has announced a modular and scalable “plug and play” microgrid solution to address the globally growing demand for flexible technology in the developing market for distributed power generation.

 The cost-efficient, containerized solution is relevant for mature and emerging countries, says the company, and will help maximize the use of renewable energy sources while reducing dependence on fossil fuels used by generator sets. 

ABB’s innovative technology with the PowerStore Battery and the dedicated Microgrid Plus control system as well as cloud-based remote service provides power access to remote areas in addition to securing cost-efficient uninterrupted power supply to communities and industries during both planned and unplanned power outages from the main grid supply.  The customer can choose to configure the microgrid to integrate energy from solar, wind, main grid or diesel generator supply, based on the application and local conditions. 

ABB’s modular microgrid is compact and has four pre-designed variants in the range of 50 kW to 4,600 kW, to meet varying customer needs. The standard integrated functionalities include grid-connected and off-grid operation with seamless transition. It is a containerized solution designed for easy transportation, fast installation and commissioning onsite. Operations and maintenance is enabled via a cloud-based remote service system.
