Schneider Electric: an enabling partner, driving the green development of the industry with the "wild geese array" of digital transformation

in June, enterprises, associations, economists, industry experts and other groups from 20 industries such as building, industry, data center and infrastructure gathered in Xiamen for the Schneider electric Innovation Summit. Under the background of global digital transformation trend and China's high-quality development, green development has become a common consensus, and digital transformation has also become an opportunity and challenge for the efficient development of enterprises in various industries. During the two-day event, a series of transformation practices and analytical insights from front-line enterprises in the industry not only gave participants inspiration and reference, but also showed the future trend with real technologies and solutions: with the continuous growth of the digital transformation ecosystem, from quantitative change to qualitative change, a more intelligent, more efficient and greener development path has become increasingly clear

digital transformation: the way to development under the energy challenge

according to the report of the International Energy Agency, although the growth rate of global energy demand slows down, the global energy demand will still increase by more than 30% by 2040, of which the growth of energy demand in Asian developing countries will account for more than 2/3. In addition, among the end uses of all kinds of energy in the world, electricity will become more and more important, accounting for nearly 1/4. With the approaching of the fourth industrial revolution marked by the interconnection of all things and intelligence, in the process of industrial digital transformation, the improvement of the operation efficiency of energy, especially power and electrical related assets, will be crucial

Li Rui, senior vice president of Schneider Electric and head of low-voltage business of energy efficiency management in China, said that today, the problem of energy crisis is becoming increasingly prominent.

facing the global energy industry pattern, Philippe Delorme, global executive vice president of Schneider Electric and President of energy efficiency management division, further pointed out that the current challenges and changes are unprecedented. The reason is that although the application of digital technologies and tools will change the existing work and operation mode of the entire energy industry, Philippe Delorme found that many people's biggest concern in the face of digital transformation is that digital technologies and new tools are very complex, which makes our primary focus is to help customers overcome this concern

therefore, the digital transformation solution required by the industry should not only meet the goal of enterprises to smoothly transition and move forward from the current foundation to a new framework for the future; It should have a high degree of flexibility, comprehensive support system, rich deployment methods, flexibility and accommodation at all stages in the process. That is, if the enterprise decides to make a new investment to complete the digital deployment, the solution should support; The enterprise decides to transform the original assets in stages, and the solution should also be supported

Schneider Electric's answer is to build an ecosystem from the supply side to the demand side, and form a wild goose formation of digital transformation through a circle of friends, so as to enable the industry. On the one hand, by building ecostruxure architecture and platform, it attracts a large number of partners to provide services to customers together; On the other hand, a large number of partners in ecostruxure can provide customers with a wider range of solutions

as Schneider Electric, which has always put China at a strategic height, helping enterprises in the Chinese market complete digital transformation is a top priority. According to nadege Petit, executive vice president of Schneider Electric's distribution products business, in order to get close to the first-line market, Schneider Electric's energy efficiency management low-voltage business weakens the traditional corporate headquarters, but divides the global core business into three important hubs (centers) in order to quickly respond to market demand. Among them, China hub has become the only hub established in a single country, and is listed as one of the three global centers for energy efficiency management low-voltage business together with North America and Europe

as the head of China hub, the low-voltage business of energy efficiency management, Li Rui particularly emphasized the speed of statistical analysis in group style. He said that China's innovation speed was unprecedented, and it was necessary to bring solutions that met the needs to Chinese customers at a faster speed
