Autonomous Energy was selected as the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company to install a 100kW commercial Solar Power system at ABB's Sydney headquarters and manufacturing plant. Autonomous Energy worked as part of a team led by Kyocera in delivering this innovative project. Autonomous Energy and Kyocera collaborated extensively with ABBs solar team in integrating a 100kW ABB Central Inverter and transformer as the power inversion and conditioning equipment enabling this Solar Power system to provide clean sustainably generated electricity for ABB's factory.

ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. This Solar Power system also allows ABB to showcase their range of Solar Power equipment to the Australian market.

The ABB Group is a global company without boundaries, acting locally in every one of the more than 100 countries in which it does business. ABB is one of a small number of genuine global leaders in the manufacturing segment of the Solar Power Industry. ABB recently acquired PowerOne, the second largest manufacturer of Solar Inverters in the world. As a key player in the solar industry, ABB is constantly striving and innovating to develop solutions that can efficiently transform the sun's energy into reliable power. ABB's offering for the solar market stems from its expertise in power electronics. Products and solutions include solar inverters, low-voltage and grid connection products.

Autonomous Energy solution
