Microgrid and energy storage technology to enable the island of Porto Santo to achieve clean-energy goals. ABB is supplying an ABB Ability enabled microgrid and energy storage system to Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira (EEM), a Madeira-based utility to harness solar and wind energy. The modular ABB Ability PowerStore microgrid solution and Microgrid Plus automation system will enable EEM to significantly increase the island’s adoption of solar and wind power and raise the share of renewables in the energy mix from 15 to 30 percent. Furthermore, ABB’s software, automation and control technologies will stabilize the power system to address fluctuations in frequency and voltage caused by intermittence of infeed, while ensuring secure power supplies with an optimal renewable energy contribution.
