    Mission to Zero: Stepping into a sustainable future--The Busch-Jaeger Case Study

    Presentation Decarbonization Pathways

    The Sustainable Future will be a transition—a journey of many steps. Learn how even little steps can make a difference in addressing a big problem like climate change. Busch-Jaeger is an industrial site in Luedenscheid, Germany, that uses ABB technologies to have energy-efficient operations and be almost carbon neutral. Core ABB technologies control and monitor all components of power supply and distribution, managing optimal energy use from various sources, including solar, and distributing it efficiently throughout the site. The project is big, but comprises many small steps, each making a world of difference.
