Among more than 3,900 entries from more than 100 countries in various categories, Schneider Electric was honored for providing excellence in energy and sustainability solutions and services.

In 2021, Schneider EcoStruxure solutions helped customers reduce their carbon emissions by 84 million tons, for a total of 347 million tons saved or avoided since 2018. These solutions are powered by the most advanced evolution of Microsoft Azure, helping customers achieve their energy and sustainability goals through the power of electrical and digital solutions.

Olivier Blum, Executive Vice President of Energy Management at Schneider Electric, asserted : ” Receiving the Microsoft Partner of the Year 2022 award in the Energy and Sustainability category is great recognition of the collaborative impact we are having together to fight climate change. We are at a decisive moment. If we do not take immediate action to reduce our emissions, we will soon pass the point of no return. Companies play a central role in preventing this; however, impact alone will not suffice. That’s why collaborations like the one between Schneider and Microsoft are needed to accelerate innovation efforts and create the technology to turn the tide. »

Among the customers that Schneider Electric has empowered, in collaboration with Microsoft, by providing excellent solutions and services, are:

  • Green Data Center: When Microsoft sought an end-to-end solution to design, manufacture and operate its data centers more efficiently, Schneider leveraged MTWO, RIB’s flagship cloud-build platform, to integrate all inputs into a federated model. . This allowed Microsoft to create a digital twin that brought speed and causality to the project during the build phase, improving efficiency with less rework and less waste.

  • CLP Hong Kong Limited: CLP, one of the largest investor-owned power companies in Asia Pacific, has deployed Schneider’s EcoStruxure ADMS and ArcFM/ArcGIS solutions, powered by Microsoft Azure, to transform its digital grid monitoring and control system. optimization of network operations. The joint solution has brought many benefits to CLP, including more efficient monitoring and control of its entire end-to-end medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) electrical network, as well as the ability to cope growth in Distributed Energy Resource (DER) penetration through accurate DER generation forecasting and monitoring.

Leading by example on ESG in its ecosystem, Schneider Electric has leveraged digital and electrical technologies in its own buildings:

  • IntenCity: Opened in 2021, Schneider’s ‘Building of the Future’ is ten times more energy efficient than an ordinary building, making it one of the most efficient buildings in the world. It covers 26,000 m2 and accommodates 1,500 employees. Schneider’s EcoStruxure solutions with Azure enable building intelligence by collecting 60,000 data points every two minutes. This enables IntenCity to use predictive data for smart building management and energy flexibility, and benefit from maximum reliability and resilience.

Schneider Electric and Microsoft have worked together for over 30 years. Longevity and success continue to be fueled by a shared vision of energy efficiency and sustainability. The ability to accelerate progress results from the unique expertise Microsoft and Schneider can bring, but it’s the collaboration that will take sustainability efforts to the next level.
