The microgrid is the first of its kind to be installed at a manufacturing campus in India and will use solar energy to help the factory meet its growing electricity needs while lowering its carbon footprint. The microgrid’s rooftop photovoltaic field and its battery-energy storage system will enable the factory to use green power supplies in the evening hours or during cloudy periods during the day. An ABB Ability™ control and automation system serves as the brain of the microgrid. When connected to renewable energy sources microgrids provide clean energy, often replacing fossil fuels. They also provide more control to the business on how and when to deploy the stored power. A key benefit is the reduction in overall operational costs and reduced spending on electricity bills. The company also inaugurated the state-of-the-art ABB PowerTEC institute which they say will be am...
