ABB Wins Zayed Future Energy Prize

ABB, the global power and automation technology group, has been awarded the Zayed Future Energy Prize 2014 in recognition of its efforts to drive innovation, renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The Future Energy award in the category ‘Large Corporations’ was presented to Spiesshofer by His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates at an awards ceremony in Abu Dhabi.

"It is a great honor to have won the Zayed Future Energy Prize 2014,” said Ulrich Spiesshofer, ABB CEO. “ABB stands for power and productivity for a better world. This prize underlines our relentless drive for innovation to create new offerings and value propositions for our clients in the renewable energy and energy efficiency fields.”

The Zayed Future Energy Prize was launched in 2008 to recognize and reward the best solutions in renewable energy and sustainability. It was named in honor of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who was a founder of the UAE, ruler of Abu Dhabi, and the UAE’s first president from 1971 until his death in 2004.

“This award brings with it the responsibility to spread the vision and environmental stewardship of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,” Spiesshofer said. “We will ensure that ABB serves as a role model to promote the prize as an incentive to spur further innovation in sustainable energy technologies around the world. Winning this prize will strengthen our belief and make us even more determined to pursue our vision, mission and strategy towards sustainable energy and towards a sustainable future.”

ABB has a 125-year heritage of technology innovation, and the group’s sustainable energy solutions also encompass fast-charging stations for electric vehicles.
