Microgrids play a key role in a low-carbon future
Microgrid technology is more viable than ever
Cutting carbon emissions while meeting the growing energy needs of an expanding global population requires innovative, pioneering solutions. One is microgrids, powered by renewable energy. These small-scale grids are exceptionally flexible, bringing power to remote communities and facilities that might otherwise have to wait years or even decades for a grid connection. They are also ideal as back-up power sources for grid-connected installations in places prone to power outages. Learn how microgrids can improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people, while helping to meet national and global emissions targets.

Successfully dealing with DERs
Seize opportunity & manage impact
Renewable energy in the form of distributed energy resources (DERs) is growing fast. This Greentech Media white paper provides information on how to optimize DER integration, while maximizing benefits and minimizing unintended consequences. It also covers challenges, opportunities, market considerations, and distribution grid impacts.
ABB’s mobile integrated GIS supplies power and ensures continuous substation operation during a key grid expansion project that integrates renewable energy into Norway’s power supply.

Benefits of the digital substation
Flexible solutions are key
This article continues from part 1 - "The protection and control system impacts from the digital world". A fully digital substation is smaller, more reliable, has a reduced life-cycle cost and is simpler to maintain and extend than an analog one. It offers increased safety and is more efficient. However, not every substation needs to be catapulted into a wholesale digital world – it depends on the substation size and type. Flexible solutions allow utilities to set their own pace on their way toward the digital substation.
