ABB recently announced that it will install a fully integrated and standardised microgrid at its Vadodara facility in Gujarat, to help boost renewable energy generation, while reducing dependency on fossil fuel. This microgrid, with a rooftop photo voltaic field at the company’s biggest manufacturing location in India will help ensure uninterrupted power supply. “Microgrid technology assumes greater significance for India as it provides access to electricity through localised generation and consumption as well as reliable and resilient power supply to urban campuses and industrial operations. There is no better way to demonstrate our commitment to green and reliable power than installing a microgrid for our campus and contributing to the nation’s vision of clean energy and 500 MW of microgrids in the next five years, which is also in full alignment with ABB’s Next Level strategy,” said Sanjeev Sharma, CEO & MD, ABB India. The facility manufactures critical power equipment like transformers, high voltage products, distribution relays, primary gas-insulated switchgear, etc.
