Electricity is generated in power plants using various fuel sources - some traditional like coal and gas (thermal) and increasingly renewable energies like wind, solar and hydro. The generated electricity is then integrated into the electricity grid and transmitted across distances through overhead, underground and sub-sea cable systems. Once it reaches closer to consumption centers distribution networks carry it through to industrial, household and commercial end users. With a 125 year heritage of technology innovation ABB continues to shape the grid of the future.
