Dual control of energy consumption turns to dual control of carbon emissions

Dual control of energy consumption turns to dual control of carbon emissions, what should I do?

Zhao Yongzhan, President of ABB Electric China, was invited to deliver a keynote speech at the "2022 China Automation + Digital Industry Annual Conference"

ABB's digital energy management system provides technical support for the transition from "dual control" of energy consumption to "dual control" of carbon emissions

Electrification, digitization and automation are key measures to achieve carbon neutrality

In the first year following the publication of the 2030 Sustainability Strategy, ABB's products, services and solutions have helped customers reduce their emissions by 11.5 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent. ABB's goal is to support its customers in reducing emissions by more than 100 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent annually by 2030, equivalent to the annual emissions of 30 million gasoline-powered vehicles.

At the "2022 China Automation + Digital Industry Annual Conference" held in Beijing on August 26, Zhao Yongzhan, President of ABB Electric China, was invited to participate in the annual conference in view of the positive role that innovative technologies will play in achieving the goal of carbon neutrality. He gave a keynote speech on "Digitalization Empowers the Low-Carbon Transformation of Industries", expounding how ABB balances the relationship between clean, low-carbon, safe and reliable, and low-cost, and uses leading digital technology to meet the needs of local customers for high-quality development and low-carbon transformation. Demand, provide industrial solutions covering electrical, process automation, motion control, robotics, and help Chinese industrial enterprises on the road to sustainable development.

As the pillar of China's economic and social development, industry is a "large energy user" and a "large carbon emitter". Since last year, power generation and electricity consumption in some regions have been unbalanced, and orderly electricity consumption has been implemented. In the face of dual control of energy consumption and tight power supply, how to help enterprises achieve low-carbon transformation while ensuring stable economic development. Previously, the government work report also mentioned the orderly promotion of carbon peaking and carbon neutralization, and the transition from "double control" of energy consumption to "double control" of total carbon emissions and intensity.

Zhao Yongzhan, President of ABB Electric China, said that helping enterprises to improve energy efficiency from the demand side through innovative technologies of "digitalization + electrification + automation" and realizing a larger proportion of clean energy replacement from the supply side are not only the key to reducing energy costs for enterprises, but also It is also an important measure to promote carbon reduction in the industrial sector.

"Digitalization + electrification + automation" on the demand side is the key and difficult point of development. Different from the relatively standard design and professional operation and maintenance of the "transmission, transformation and distribution" of the power system, the production environment and development level of various industries on the demand side vary greatly. Modular, multi-category equipment is required to realize the measurable, optimized, and controllable energy system, and a flexibly arranged management platform is required to realize the coordinated regulation of energy and production.

ABB provides ZEE600, a digital energy management platform, to technically find a way to save energy and reduce carbon emissions, help companies build smart energy industrial parks, realize the overall layout of a low-carbon energy system, support the access and complementation of multiple energy sources, and provide high-resilience power supply; , through intelligent prediction and precise regulation and control technology of source, network, load and storage, realize energy saving and emission reduction in the park, help enterprises to deeply integrate green manufacturing and intelligent manufacturing, and practice the road of low-carbon development; and support multi-level regulation to achieve distribution Cross-system coordination and linkage of electricity, HVAC, and buildings can reduce the cost of energy use. In Tianjin Nestle Purina Pet Food Co., Ltd., the ABB ZEE600 platform is used, which provides three-in-one functions of asset health management, power monitoring management and energy efficiency management.
