Schneider Electric demonstrates the power of ‘Smart Energy’ solutions at Intelect 2015

Schneider Electric India, the global specialist in energy management, showcased its innovative and diverse range of smart energy solutions at Intelect 2015 organized by IEEE in Mumbai. The theme of the event was smart electricity and Schneider Electric, being one of the foremost solutions providers, exhibited solutions which can save up to 30% energy, thereby reducing capital costs significantly.

The platform allowed Schneider Electric to provide a virtual, graphic-facilitated demonstration of how smart electricity integrates different aspects of a smart city. The needs of interconnectivity and sophistication, which are essential for the establishment and functioning of smart cities, have made integrated networks more complex with far more open access. Schneider Electric showcased how it’s smart and adaptive solutions help manage the challenges thrown open by the complexity of networks.

Top officials across different business units from Schneider Electric were also present at the exhibition and shared their views on how smart solutions will play a major role in the whole digital revolution that has gripped India today. Mr. Prakash Chandraker, Vice President, Energy BU, Schneider Electric India and Mr. Charbel Aoun, Senior Vice President, Schneider Electric delivered keynote address on the topic of smart cities.
Speaking at the event Mr. Anil Chaudhry, Country President and Managing Director, Schneider Electric India said, “The year 2015 is expected to be a turnaround year for the Indian power sector as the centre aims to meet its goal of providing uninterrupted electricity supply to all households and smart solutions will play a major role in achieving energy efficiency and sustainability. The Government has set the ball rolling with a plethora of announcements that are set to revive the power sector in 2015 and Schneider Electric whole-heartedly supports the favourable and progressive announcements by the government.”

Smart Energy will define the future of real estate and the definition of quality living. Commercial and residential buildings account for up to 40% of energy use in most countries.
