Message from Managing Director


Dear friends,

India has traditionally been dependent on fulfilling its power needs through fossil fuels, however, this has its own issues as the country develops and the economy expands. Solar energy today has emerged as the frontrunner when it comes to renewable energy sources. There is no question why it should not be as India receives abundant sunlight, over 300 days! Some of the initiatives taken by government at the central and state levels have helped in ensuring that clean energy is given priority over fossil-based plants.

ABB in India has been working with its customers in India to power the solar dreams of the country with an array of products and customized solutions. Our solar inverters and compact substations are enabling customers harness solar energy by making power networks smarter and helping to protect the environment and fight climate change.
This issue of Contact features glimpses of some of the solutions we have provided to significant projects we had an opportunity to be part of, as well as some global successes we have achieved. In addition, we are also featuring some of the innovations and global expertise we intend to bring to the Indian market.
We hope that you find this issue of Contact an interesting read.
