Carbon-neutral production site

Did you know…

…ABB’s first CO-neutral production site, located in Luedenscheid, Germany, saves more than 680 tons of COa year?

The project is a proof-of-concept that it is possible to create and run a zero emissions factory. On sunny days, ABB products generate enough power to run the entire factory and even feed energy into the grid. Whenever the on-site solutions can’t cover a peak in energy demand, additional green energy is sourced from a provider, which guarantees 100% CO-neutral production.


ABB’s Luedenscheid factory, which produces state-of-the art equipment for smart buildings, is powered by photovoltaic solar panels that cover approx. 7,300 square meters, installed on the on-site car park roof. After operating 12 months, the combination of solar power, smart energy management and a highly efficient energy network at the factory generated 1,190 MWh of energy – which equates to a carbon saving of 681 tons, and about as much as the annual demand from 360 private households.

The technical centerpiece of the system is the scalable energy management system OPTIMAX® from the ABB Ability™ Energy Management for Sites suite. The digital solution provides for the constant surveillance and optimum control of energy production, consumption and storage and operates largely autonomously. This learning system calculates the optimum energy flow on the basis of predictive data and compensates for deviations in real time.
