ABB Smart Grid Center of Excellence

ABB's Smart Grid Center of Excellence is open and ready for business. Located on Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University, the team is assembled and already hard at work in fulfilling our mission to provide customers with the most proven integrated smart grid solutions for distribution automation.

This new state-of-the-art Smart Grid Center of Excellence (COE) was created to demonstrate ABB’s technology and investment in the smart grid industry. The COE has functional systems which display the end-to-end solution where information technologies (IT) and operational technologies (OT) converge to close the loop of automation, control and data acquisition. In addition to the demonstration area, ABB has invested in a Distribution Automation Verification Center, where the interoperable testing of industry accepted products and development of advanced applications can take place.
