Schneider Electric and Capgemini collaborate for Energy Command Centre optimisation solution

Schneider Electric (EPA:SCHN) and Capgemini have teamed up to combine their expertise in energy management and automation, and technology transformation services, to offer new solutions and technologies in the energy optimisation arena.

The energy sector accounted for more than 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions in recent years according to the International Energy Agency, giving heavy importance to optimising energy efficiency with greener, smarter solutions.

Introducing the Energy Command Centre

The two companies have now revealed the Energy Command Centre (ECC) solution, developed by Capgemini and powered by Schneider Electric.

The ECC is designed to be an integrated, centralised platform to monitor, control and optimise building assets that consume energy, including data centres and critical environment rooms.

It combines artificial intelligence with machine learning and Internet of Things technologies to measure, predict and improve the overall performance of energy assets, with a particular focus on energy intensity, health of critical assets, critical operations and renewable energy generation.

“Tackling the energy and climate crises is paramount, and energy efficiency plays a key role in mitigating these challenges,” Schneider Electric CEO Peter Herweck said.

“Decarbonisation through electrification and digitisation is a necessity for a sustainable future. We are very excited to collaborate with Capgemini, as it allows us to further advance our efforts to drive energy efficiency and sustainable practices.

“Together we can make a meaningful impact.”

Prototype achieved 29% reduction in consumption

The companies say the ECC leverages real-time energy consumption and emissions data combined with modular and interoperable building management software and systems to help lower energy consumption and spend, directly contributing to net-zero goals.

“At Capgemini we are deeply convinced that there is an incredible untapped potential for digital technologies and data to accelerate the energy transition. We share this vision and commitment with Schneider Electric,” said Capgemini CEO Aiman Ezzat.

“We are at a pivotal moment for the energy transition and are thrilled to join forces and combine our deep technology and data expertise with Schneider Electric’s reputed solutions, to empower organisations to manage and accelerate their energy decarbonisation pathway.”

An ECC prototype tested across Capgemini’s operations in India in 2022 achieved a 29% reduction in energy consumption in 2023 compared to 2019 across the company’s eight main campuses in India.
