Cities around the world are challenged to sustainably accommodate increasing populations, or to become more sustainable, competitive and liveable. ABB products and solutions are at the heart of a city's critical infrastructure, relied upon for everything from the supply of power, water and heat, to the automation of the factories and buildings we work in.
