ABB launches unified software to provide single view of microgrids and battery energy storage

12 February 2019

ABB Ability™ e-mesh™ offers automation and single view for managing
distributed energy resources, enhancing crucial decision-making functionality


ABB announces the global launch of its new ABB Ability™ e-mesh™ solution during DistribuTECH, an annual summit and exhibition summit for the energy industry and which takes place in New Orleans, USA. This innovative software solution provides power grid operators an integrated single and unified view of their distributed energy resources (DERs) such as microgrids, battery energy storage systems (BESS) and renewable power generation.

The widespread adoption of renewable energy is driven by global commitments to sustainability and is enabled by the reduced cost of key technologies such as photovoltaic panels and batteries, thus providing power from a variety of energy sources. Analysis of data from these sources of distributed energy can provide insights for decision-making, such as knowing where to increase investments on maintenance or to better calculate the cost of new infrastructure.

ABB Ability™ e-mesh™ solution is a comprehensive cloud-based offering that enables utilities, industries, independent power producers and operators to make smarter, faster and more effective business decisions by monitoring and controlling their sites and fleets remotely. It also enables in-depth data analytics and provides service options. The increased visibility across all assets enables better control, optimized investment cost and better operational efficiency.

“The ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ (IIoT) is becoming a reality with intelligent field equipment and connected devices producing data that can bring valuable insights, operational efficiency and cost savings,” said Massimo Danieli, head of ABB’s Grid Automation business within the company’s Power Grids division. “ABB Ability™ e-mesh™ integrates real-time monitoring, data aggregation and analysis, energy management systems, machine learning and predictive analytics, to accelerate the digitization journey and to further support the creation of a stronger, smarter and greener grid.”

ABB is a pioneer in microgrid technology and battery energy storage with over 100 such global installations, across a diverse range of applications serving remote communities, islands, utilities and industrial campuses.
