Schneider Electric continues to develop its mature and widely deployed EcoStruxure platform
to help utilities boost energy efficiency and thrive in the face of new energy challenges. Those include the widespread adoption of distributed energy resources and sweeping industry changes driven by global megatrends including decarbonization, decentralization, and digitization.
Schneider’s utility customer analytics, which complement and seamlessly integrate with their flexible and scalable IoT platform, strengthen utilities’ ability to drive and ensure revenue growth despite shrinking capex budgets. The company’s analytics solutions place utilities’ customers at the core of their digital activities, enabling distribution system operators to secure customer satisfaction and trust though their downstream services.
"We understand how important it is for utilities to engage their customers and translate their customer data into insights, foresights, and better efficiency. The powerful analytics technologies we build into our EcoStruxure IoT platform do exactly that. They give utilities around the world real advantages during this time of energy transition and budget constraints," said Frédéric Abbal, EVP Infrastructure Division.
That transition, brought about by the growth of DER and connected, digital technology, affects distribution utilities more than most other players in the industry. A cohesive strategy that employs digitization’s various movements, such as IoT and data analytics, is a key ingredient for utilities to ensure customer satisfaction.
