clean en­ergy for around 4,000 ru­ral house­holds. It avoids pro­duc­tion of more than 1,300 kilo­grams of CO2 emis­sions. The mi­cro­grid is equipped with a state-of-the-art bat­tery bank for power stor­age and bal­anc­ing and can func­tion in­de­pen­dently or as a sup­ple­ment to the main grid.

“Us­ing mi­cro­grid tech­nol­ogy, In­dia can not only light up its re­mote vil­lages, in line with the govern­ment’s power for all pro­grammes, but also de­cen­tralise gen­er­a­tion and op­ti­mise power us­age in re­mote in­dus­trial in­stal­la­tions or ur­ban com­plexes,” said ABB Group CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer.

“On an av­er­age, In­dian in­dus­tries use 30 per cent more en­ergy than global bench­marks to man­u­fac­ture a pro­duc­tion unit. Op­ti­mi­sa­tion of en­ergy use is im­per­a­tive as In­dia bal­ances growth and the need to min­imise en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact. The re­sult­ing en­ergy sav­ings and ef­fi­ciency can be equiv­a­lent to set­ting up new ca­pac­ity. Mi­cro­grid tech­nol­ogy de­ployed for ur­ban and power sen­si­tive in­stal­la­tions can aid re­li­able, op­ti­mal and clean power sup­ply,” said ABB In­dia MD Bazmi Hu­sain.
