Eco-efficient Switchgear | ABB

Eco-efficient switchgear. ABB is committed to the development of eco-efficient products which reduce the use of resources and the effects on the environment throughout their lifecycle. Although the contribution of insulating gas emissions from gas-insulated medium voltage switchgear (MV GIS) to man-made global warming is very small, an eco-efficient insulating gas will contribute to a reduction in the carbon footprint of the electricity grid.
