ABB supporting sustainable manufacturing in China

ABB unveiled a new solar power generation and renewable energy integration system at its manufacturing site ABB LV Installation Materials Co., Ltd. Beijing. The ABB factory for low-voltage products has over 600 employees and spans around 24,000 sqm. The rooftop photovoltaic system will deliver approximately 420 MWh per year, reducing the annual greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 400 tons. ABB’s electric vehicle chargers and sophisticated energy management software systems deliver a holistic energy efficiency solution, utilizing building automation and digitalization throughout the plant.

The Beijing project was launched after a successful pilot project at the company’s Busch-Jaeger subsidiary in Luedenscheid, Germany, in 2019, where a photovoltaic system delivers around 1,100 MWh of climate-neutral solar power a year. The system generates enough climate-neutral solar power to cover 100 percent of the factory’s power requirements on sunny days and has reduced the site’s CO2e emissions by some 680 tons per year.

“Based on our experience with our self-sufficient energy factory in Luedenscheid, Germany, our recent project in Beijing is another important milestone on our way to achieve carbon neutrality across our own operations by 2030”, said Theodor Swedjemark, Chief Communications and Sustainability Officer. “Our new ambitious sustainability strategy will benefit all our stakeholders, across our value chain, and help enable a low carbon society.”
