Rolls-Royce Power Systems has announced that it will partner with Swiss-Swedish multinational technology company ABB on microgrid technology and advanced automation. The two companies hope to create an energy-efficient microgrid solution for commercial and industrial companies.

ABB will utilise the Ability e-mesh solution, a technological system that will help to reduce operational costs. The systems cloud operations will also use weather and load forecasts, along with machine learning algorithms, to increase revenue streams.

Rolls-Royce’s MTU Onsite Energy brand power system solution, which allows for standby and continuous power for microgrids, will also form a cornerstone of the partnership.

Rolls-Royce CEO Andreas Schell said: “Due to the transformation towards decarbonisation, customers need to pursue sustainable power options that also deliver utmost profitability. For this, we rely primarily on microgrids, which are autonomous energy supply systems that are efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly.

“Combining our integrated MTU diesel and gas genset system technology and our control solutions, with ABB’s modular microgrid solution, control capability and remote service, will offer customers the combined strengths of the two world leaders in technology.”

ABB head of grid automation Massimo Danieli added: “ABB Ability e-mesh can ensure a stable power grid, even with a high share of renewable energy from various sources, working smoothly together with already installed gas or diesel engines.
