Energy, electrical safety goals: Schneider Electric to empower network of partners with high-paced, built-to-demand, simplified products




Determined to make energy sustainable and electrical safety goals achievable, Schneider Electric, the leading firm in digital transformation, energy management and automation, is set to empower its robust network of partners with high-paced, built-to-demand, supportive and simplified products complete with native connectivity.

To this end, Schneider Electric is launching “Partnerships of the Future’’ that is expected to fuel sustainability and efficiency in the power sector.

It is also to address the global urgency of climate change and the 21st century’s most significant challenges of the accelerating energy transition and growing demand for energy.

The Executive Vice-President of Power Products of Schneider Electric, Mr Rohan Kelkar, said the company would also bring substantial cost efficiencies and operational synergies to the marketplace.

“The convergence of IT & OT, combined with the increasingly digital and electric world, allows us to offer smart interoperable solutions, systems, and products that do not cost more to build and commission while bringing substantial cost efficiencies and operational synergies to the marketplace.

“Digital technologies are a catalyst for business growth. Yet, the inherent complexities that digital transformation projects bring with them may cause decision paralysis and implementation delays.

“This is why our goal is to face up to the digital challenge and enable the market through ‘Partnerships of the Future’ by equipping our partners with strategies, solutions, and services for increased sustainability and efficiency,” he said.

According to Kelkar, the initiatives will strengthen global efforts aimed at designing a more resilient, sustainable electric world.

“It is committed to enabling a green recovery whilst supporting the mega trends of mass digitization, greater electrification, along with the increasing role of natively connected digital products and software, in a bid to ensure sustainability and energy efficiency at scale.’’

Schneider Electric dubbed this vision an ‘All-Electric, All Digital New Electric World’, powered by abundant clean energy, or Electricity 4.0.

Kelkar noted that increased digitization and industry innovation makes simplified, open standard solutions, training and knowledge transfers available to our partners as it looks to leverage meaningful Partnerships of the Future to enable the new electric world.

Schneider Electric also wants its partners to openly collaborate with one another, to share and learn for mutual benefit and, by extension, the benefit of their customers.

With more than 650,000 members, 300 apps, and 100-plus communities, its open ecosystem is a robust resource for all players involved.

“It also enables collaboration with other electrical contractors and peers, access to a state-of-the-art technology portfolio, the opportunity to stay up to date with the rapid evolution of the markets in order to help generate new sales leads,” Schneider Electric said in a statement given to Persecondnews.

MySchneider Partner Programme encourages transformative and collaborative solutions within Schneider Electric’s energy management ecosystem with curated content for partners.

The company aims to deliver digital solutions and connected products that drive meaningful outcomes for its partners. It informed that, it is launching a number of next generation safety, reliability and connectivity solutions for critical industry segments, buildings and infrastructure.

Some of these connectivity solutions include the new iconic TeSys™ Giga, which features native digital connectivity and is packed with 56 new patents; and the PrismaSeT™ active low-voltage switchboard, which is an industry-first product to include built-in cloud connectivity, providing instant access to intelligent alarming, energy usage analysis, trends, and preventative maintenance plans.

Others are the new generation ComPacT™ molded-case circuit breakers, which feature a refreshed design and tailored for operational excellence and significant simplification of maintenance activities; and the next generation BlokSeT™ and Okken™ LV switchboards , which have been given a new look and feel for an improved ergonomic experience.

With the launch, Schneider Electric reaffirms its commitment to provide open, simple to deploy digital solutions to drive sustainability and efficiency, enabling industry-wide collaboration and partnerships in the New Electric World. New programs help strengthen our partners’ position in the world of connected solutions and drive industry innovation.

These innovations, it says, are brought together under EcoStruxure™Power – a comprehensive, open, IoT-enabled architecture and platform that simplifies and digitizes electrical distribution systems to enable more resilient, sustainable, and efficient facility operations by delivering on the fundamental goals of connected power distribution: electrical safety, power availability/reliability, operational & energy efficiency, and cybersecurity.

Moreover, EcoStruxure™ Power is designed to optimize the CAPEX of smart solutions throughout the design, build, and commissioning phases of projects by minimizing risk and costs whilst increasing efficiency.

Not only does it allow for better integration of clean energy, strengthening resilience of the grid and key infrastructure – it also helps to avoid unplanned downtime, as the world stands to benefit from the power of sustainable clean energy, or Electricity 4.0.

According to industry research, the average cost of downtime in hospitals is $8,662 per minute, while 98 percent of organizations say one hour of downtime costs over$100,000. With EcoStruxure™, the average expected savings include 35% of engineering time, 24% of energy consumption savings and a 20% of CO2 footprint optimization.

Currently, EcoStruxure™ covers 500,000 sites globally, connecting some 45,000 developers and system integrators, 3,000 utilities, and 650,000 service providers and partners as a community.
