A significant share of the energy consumed is in our own homes – and much can be gained from making cutbacks in this area.
ABB's smart building automation system, i-bus KNX, saves energy by means of controlling lighting and ventilation in buildings of all shapes and sizes.
The buildings of the future will be served actively by Smart Grid, an intelligent power grid developed and operated by ABB. Many of our products are adapted for the Smart Grid. This, for example, enables us to redistribute and balance power loads while transferring capacity from wind farms and solar stations to hydropower plants.
