With the improvements and advancements in the world of technology, many companies have started leveraging this cutting edge technologies to bring out a change to the way we consume resources everyday. One of the crucial things which we would be talking about today is the need to regulate how different forms of energy is utilized, most of it getting wasted. We are in an era where the demands are growing at a much faster rate when compared to the production. And to offer a much more reliable and safer consumption, Schneider Electric took a step forward and launched a very unique concept called EcoStruxure, that would redefine energy management and automation for customers.
During the keynote, Schneider Electric India’s Country President and Managing Director Mr. Anil Chaudhry said, “Digitisation offers tremendous opportunities for improving competency of power distribution in India. In the new world of energy – where lives are more electric, more connected, and more distributed – we are better able to address the problem from the other side — from the demand side, from the perspective of the energy user. In line with this, a prerequisite to extracting optimal efficiency of power discoms is the coming together of energy, automation and software & analytics. This makes the energy value chain more intelligent — more predictable.”
EcoStruxure is designed to meet the core customer challenge of implementing IoT solutions seamlessly, cost-effectively and also keeping in mind the scalability. The redefined IoT platform is predicted to bridge the IT-OT gap and connect the three core layers of Schneider Electric’s innovation technology stack to maximize value for the end-consumers. The launch of the EcoStruxure platform provides a secure, IoT-enabled technology backbone with three core technology capabilities:
- Embedded connectivity and intelligence that enables smart sensing, embedded computing, IP networking and edge analytics.
- A foundation for smart operations to serve as the building blocks for control, management, automaton and optimization.
- The infrastructure for cloud-connected digital services that enables the delivery of cloud-based connected apps, analytics, services, control and monitoring
Schneider Electric also announced it is working with established partners such as Microsoft and Intel, and new partners who the company will be working with to create or co-create customer solutions and applications.
