How Schneider Electric uses ‘EcoStruxure’ to improve energy efficiency, sustainability
Schneider Electric created EcoStruxure several years ago and has begun to quantify its impact—an integrated, cloud-based, IoT-system that connects all aspects of a building, from the shop floor to the top floor to tailor the use of energy.
Since its launch, the system has been integrated in over 450,000 installations and connected over one billion devices, as reported in Shopfloor.org. These implementations were in turn supported by over 9,000 system integrators.
In 2015, Deloitte began using the system on its most energy efficient building called “The Edge” – the connected network of solar panels produces 102 percent of the energy in the building. By adjusting this energy need based on signals from all parts of the entity, The Edge has managed to limit energy consumption to less than 0.3kWh/m per year.
