ENGIE and Schneider Electric Collaborate to Digitize the Energy Sector
Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, and ENGIE, a global energy player committed to lead the energy transition worldwide, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore and deploy new digital solutions for operational efficiency of renewable assets (wind and solar PV), leveraging Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Historian and related application software powered by Schneider Electric’s Wonderware brand.
Asset management, SCADA obsolescence management, remote monitoring and diagnostics and cybersecurity in a complex ecosystem will also be investigated as part of the agreement.
ENGIE and Schneider Electric welcome this collaboration as a major joint initiative in the digitization of the energy sector.
“ENGIE’s objective is to develop remote supervision and control of its global renewable energy production assets, and possibly other energy assets as well, to optimize their performance. We are working in close collaboration with Schneider Electric with a shared vision of the challenges of an energy world that is decarbonized, digitalized and decentralized,” specified Didier Holleaux, Executive Vice President of ENGIE.
“Schneider Electric leverages its software solutions to address and solve customer needs in new and efficient ways, which will now benefit to ENGIE, a great business partner of Schneider Electric over the past decade. Our combined technology and industry expertise can help identify new opportunities on how to better serve the energy market, while providing greater access to affordable, clean energy,” said Philippe Delorme, Executive Vice President, Building & IT, Schneider Electric.
Schneider Electric is already a ENGIE's strategic partner for real-time monitoring and management of its European wind and solar power installations. This partnership demonstrates ENGIE’s ambition to accelerate its digitization globally to lead the energy transition.
