ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System helps streamline and accelerate sustainability strategies. A GREENMAP strategic assessment by green building innovation center Habitech found that ABB’s smart energy solution can contribute to 6 of the LEED scheme’s mandatory prerequisites and to 9 of its credit categories, facilitating up to 36 of the 40 points needed to achieve LEED certification. The ABB Ability EDCS is the quickest way to integrate smart energy management into green building projects, specifying the system also makes the LEED certification process simpler. EDCS combines proven sustainability benefits with automated data acquisition, monitoring and management tools that put energy saving strategies into action immediately.

LEED certification is the world’s most widely used green building rating system, covering virtually all types of building. The scheme provides independent confirmation that a building or development has been designed and built in ways that improve its environmental performance, delivering on the metrics that matter most. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points for various green building strategies across several categories, Integrative Process, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources. Projects receive one of four LEED ratings: Certified (40-49 points); Silver (50-59 points); Gold (60-79 points), and Platinum (80+ points). The ABB Ability EDCS supports essential requirements in each category and supports the advanced metering, energy optimization, renewable energy integration and water metering strategies needed to achieve high LEED scores.

Supporting ABB Electrificaton’s Mission to Zero, the ABB Ability EDCS uses cloud-based algorithms to monitor, optimize, predict and control a building’s electrical system, removing inefficiencies and reducing energy bills by up to 10 percent. The innovative system’s dashboard and range of scalable control functions make it straightforward to identify and action waste-cutting opportunities and to achieve compliance with higher energy efficiency standards.

Habitech is Italy’s specialist Energy and Environment zone and a national center for green building and renewable energy innovation. Habitech’s GREENMAP industrial program promotes the sustainable transformation of industries and organizations.
