ABB launches residential products at Intersolar and strengthens bet on renewables

2017-08-22 - Company shows news and broad portfolio for the entire photovoltaic energy chain

ABB will be in Intersolar South America, which will take place from August 22 to 24, in São Paulo, with launches for the renewable energy market. The multinational has been operating in the photovoltaic segment for more than 25 years and is a leader in the supply of equipment and solutions, with more than 26 GW of installed energy in more than 100 countries.

Renewables are expected to receive 3/4 of the $ 10.2 trillion that the world will invest in new forms of generation technology by 2040, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecast. Brazil has more than 11,000 solar ceilings, most of them in homes and the expectation of the solar energy sector is to move R $ 4.5 billion in Brazil until December.

ABB has extensive portfolio of technologies for residential, commercial, industrial and microgrids applications, including solar inverters, transformers, low and medium voltage products, electrical protection, and predictive maintenance and monitoring systems. According to Bruno Monteiro, ABB Brasil's solar energy manager, the company brings three launches for this edition of the fair, which can be seen at the F8 booth.

"ABB is betting on the growth of this market and has new developments for residential facilities. One is the REACT inverter, with integrated storage, and the only one in Brazil that works with energy backup. The great advantage is that it offers autonomy and stability for the consumer, regardless of the power grid. If there is a blackout, the user can use the stored energy, "says the executive. "All generation information, with high level of detail, is sent via wireless via the device to the ABB platform in the cloud and the user has access via tablet or smartphone. Another solution that reinforces ABB's commitment to the Internet of Things, "adds Monteiro.

The company constantly invests in R & D to deliver high-performance technology solutions with added engineering value to customers. "Solar inverters already come with integrated protection, can be adapted to any type of installation and make the operator's life easier. ABB solutions deliver greater return on investment, delivering greater energy efficiency, reduced installation time and faster response times. "
