Technology & Sustainability

The Championship is more than a race, it is a testbed for innovative technologies, which will ultimately contribute to a cleaner environment for all. 

As ABB enters its sixth season as title partner– and its first as Official Charging Partner – we are continuing to implement leading technologies within the series. These technologies position ABB at the forefront of sustainable technology development within the series and beyond.

Our UPS system is installed in the race series’ TV compound. It guarantees that power continues to reach broadcasters in the event of a grid power failure at a race circuit, ensuring that live race broadcasts never go ‘off air’. This UPS is a highly efficient bespoke unit developed by a specialist team at ABB.

Wheel-mounted and weight-optimized, it has been made in a package small and robust enough to be shipped easily and more sustainably. It has plug-and-play functionality to simplify installation for the on-site team and can provide 15 minutes of autonomous 60kVA power with input/output voltages of 230/400VAC 50 Hz.

Following successful trials in Season 8, ABB is continuing to push boundaries of sustainable technology by introducing its innovative energy management software solution to the sport. ABB Ability Optimax® is deployed at race circuits to monitor and analyze total race-specific energy output more efficiently. Up to 14 metering boxes will be located at host venues, collecting data on how much electrical power (kilowatts) is being used by teams and other eace partners at that moment and how much electricity (kilowatts hours) is conumed over ant given period. This information will be relayed back to race control via the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Total consumption across entire E-Prix sites is also monitored, encompassing operations including the TV broadcast suite, E-Village fan zone, media center, catering facilities, the paddock and, of course, the teams’ pit garages.
