Products and Solutions

As per our Technology Blueprint, a typical smart building will use interconnected technologies to improve comfort and performance across energy management, water use, air conditioning, access, automation, lighting, remote monitoring, and communication networks. Thanks to ABB’s solution areas within the ABB Ability Building Ecosystem, building operators and facility managers can have a digital control of all these elements, and smart buildings will capture their inherent opportunities to become more environmentally friendly – from substantially contributing to carbon reduction targets through efficiency gains in heating and cooling equipment and in the building itself.

The ABB digital solutions enable constant surveillance and optimum control of energy production, consumption and storage. Largely autonomous, this learning system calculates the optimum energy flow based on predictive data and compensates for deviations in real time. In a Mission to Zero site, these technologies are combined for a holistic approach that can be easily scaled according to the requirements of the building.

The digitalization of buildings through connected technologies and building automation has also a key role to play in helping to manage grid resiliency & reliability and in reducing energy costs while increasing energy efficiency. Moreover, it is an important step towards the energy transition, as it enables the building to provide value-adding services towards the modern energy grid and thus supports the shift from “consumer” to “prosumer” – facilitating concepts such as virtual power plants and maximizing the value of Distributed Energy Resources (e.g. photovoltaic, batteries) on a broader scale. Within that context, the program strongly leverages also on the ABB Ability™ Energy and Asset Manager*, for monitoring, optimization and maintenance prediction using big data and artificial intelligence. 

The typical solution scope for a Mission to Zero project includes:

  • Distributed Energy Resources - such as on-site photo voltaic technology, EV-chargers, energy storage, motors & drives, power supply & protection – as well as Digital solutions for energy management – incl. monitoring, control & multi-purpose optimization
  • Building automation & HVAC controls – such as digital integration platforms, building automation & control, HVAC control & optimization, space management and wellness & productivity, lighting and shading control and presence detection.

Although borne from the Electrification Business Area, Mission to Zero spans the entire organization and many product and solution sets, combined with 3rd party technology via our partnership ecosystem. 

These include:  

  • Building control and automation through ABB Ability™ Building Ecosystem, incl. HVAC, Lighting, and Shading control and automation via i-bus® KNX and ABB Cylon® BACnet® solutions
  • Metering, Monitoring, and Optimization of electrical power & energy flows through ABB Ability™ Energy and Asset Manager platform 
  • Power distribution with ABB System pro E power or MNS® 3.0 low
  • voltage switchgear including Emax 2 air circuit breakers or NEO Gear low-voltage switchgear solutions   
  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure (EVCI) for fast (DC) and slow (AC) charging applications
  • Highly efficient and smart electrical motors and variable speed drives
  • Battery energy storage systems (BESS) for maximizing PV self-consumption and peak-shaving
  • Photovoltaic systems for local green energy generation (provided by partners)

Let’s write the future of electrification. Together.

Our Mission to Zero is only feasible if we act together. Our Mission to Zero sites show that a safe, smart and sustainable future of electrification is achievable. The technologies are there we just need to apply them.
