My Power Grids Stories Zurich, Switzerland 23-07-2020

Eduardo Alvarado, Canada

I am proud to be Power Grids because the company’s purpose is aligned with my personal values and my passion to contribute to a greener, sustainable and cleaner future for all of us by using high-tech and efficient energy solutions together with a highly experienced and motivated team.

"Hitachi ABB Power Grids has a great team culture based on fundamental core values of safety, integrity and trust driven by strong collaboration, driving outstanding performance, innovation and quality service to our customers.  There are always different challenges, which is very exciting and fun. I feel fortunate to be working along with such experienced and knowledgeable colleagues. I am proud to be part of this team, which I consider as the 'big leagues.'

In my 17+ years’ experience and having been able to experiment working in different industries, Energy is without a doubt my passion, and having access to the unique Hitachi-ABB portfolio plus working with such skilled and experienced people in the company is a total game changer.

As a Strategic Account Manager in the front-end sales Canadian team, I represent all the businesses within Power Grids such as Transformers, High Voltage, Grid Automation and Grid Integration and our goal is helping our customers’ diverse Energy challenges and working together on solutions as a unified team towards the ultimate purpose of enabling a more reliable, sustainable, stronger and clean grid.

In my role, my focus is looking after an exceptional customer relationship management, identifying new challenges/opportunities and working together with my peers--from a small power component to a highly complex turnkey project or highly specialized Energy Management Software solutions as microgrids, Power Substations and digital technologies in addressing them—we offer solutions in support of the ultimate purpose of enabling a more reliable, sustainable and cleaner energy grid to improve quality of life and support decarbonizing the world

Sustainable clean energy must be a top priority for the long run, for world preservation. Working side by side with our customers in support of UN’s Global Sustainable Development Goals by utilizing our pioneering clean energy technologies is truly inspiring.  

Hitachi is a highly reputable company focused on innovation which shares the same values with ABB. The fact that Power Grids is a complementary match to their portfolio makes it very exciting for unlocking greater potential for our customers. I am ready to work more with Hitachi on board, learn new technologies and eager to see the synergies that will unfold to deliver additional value to our customers."
