Business Launching Issues and Solutions

Where Are the Business Opportunities, and How Can These Be Launched as Businesses?

The city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, now getting excited for the Soccer World Cup and the Olympics, has now launched the “Operations Center” for unified management of information for the purpose of protecting the metropolis from disaster, and ensuring the safety and security of residents, to enhance urban management. Meanwhile, the city of Stockholm, Sweden, one of the mature cities of Europe, is now promoting a project to redevelop an industrial district as a residential zone with a small environmental footprint. While confirming business models of differing methods depending on the region or purpose, through standardization of the Smart City now under discussion at the International Standards Organization (ISO), a project for creating new urban services from big data in relation to transport or health, etc. now being developed in London, and the latest trends in Smart Grid Business that are beginning to appear around the world, the issue of business launching and business opportunities can be considered.

    Smart Cities - Executing a smart grid project in one of the world's leading capital cities

    The electric power industry is undergoing an epic transformation that is changing the way we deliver and use electricity. This transformation requires a combination of technological leadership, financial strength and significant corporate backing from global players. Understanding all of the key elements of the power landscape and how they fit together is the key to defining an effective strategy and investment for smart grids. ABB has an unparalleled smart grid portfolio across the power value chain and a rich legacy of technology and innovation. This technology strength and experience enables ABB to offer efficient and reliable energy solutions. In addition, ABB offers consultancy, design, service and support services on a global scale to help customers derive maximum operational benefits and return on their investment.
    Our combined approach of information systems and operational technology has played a pivotal part in many smart grid projects around the world including the Stockholm Royal Seaport project in Sweden, a smart grid project in one of the world's leading capital cities supported by the Clinton Climate Initiative Program. The project aims to become climate positive and fossil-fuel-free by 2030. At the same time, carbon emissions should be less than 1.5 tons per person. Today, the average level in Stockholm is 4.5 tons per person. Stockholm Royal Seaport stretches from Husarviken Bay in the north to Loudden in the south. It also includes the ports, Värtahamnen and Frihamnen. Furthermore, this district is one of Europe’s most extensive city development projects.
    At this site, ABB is working with the utility company, Fortum and other stakeholders to develop and implement new solutions for the smart grid of the future.
