Hitachi ABB Power Grids is set to create Europe’s first multi-terminal high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) interconnection for Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Transmission.
Hitachi Capital (UK) has made a multi-million pound investment into EV charging and solar company GRIDSERVE.
Hitachi has confirmed it has suspended work on the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power plant, a move which risks “blowing a hole” in the UK’s decarbonisation strategy.
Power electronics giant Hitachi has acquired ABB’s power grids business in an $11 billion (£8.7 billion) deal which has been described as a "turning point" for the energy transition.
The first tranche of a near £3 million investment is to be deployed on the Isles of Scilly to deliver installations of new solar arrays, electric vehicle chargers - including some with vehicle-to-grid technology - and a series of low carbon grants to local businesses.
