Power-One renewable energy business rebrands to ABB name
By Alyssa Dalton
May 20, 2014 – ABB, a power and automation technology group, has announced the Power-One renewable energy business will transition to the ABB brand this month.
Last July, ABB acquired Power-One Inc., a provider of renewable energy and of energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions—a move which allows the ABB brand to “represent the most comprehensive solar value proposition on the market today and one of the industry’s broadest inverter product portfolios”, it said.
The current Power-One renewable energy product offering—including product names Uno, Trio and Ultra—will remain intact under the ABB brand, and all product certifications will remain valid.
“By transitioning Power-One’s Renewable Energy business to the ABB brand, we will be able to take full advantage of the combination of these two companies. We will have one of the most comprehensive solar inverter offerings under one brand, meeting customers’ needs across all key segments—utility, commercial and residential,” said Pekka Tiitinen, head of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division.
