Schneider Electric recently won the Energy & Sustainability 2022 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award – honoured for its EcoStruxure software solutions provided to customers that were powered by Microsoft technology, including Azure Cloud and Dynamics 365.

Out of nearly 4,000 submissions from more than 100 countries across various categories, Schneider Electric was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services in energy and sustainability.

Schneider Electric and Microsoft have been working together for more than 30 years. Last year, Schneider’s EcoStruxure solutions helped customers reduce their carbon emissions by 84 million tonnes, which amounts to 347 million tonnes saved or avoided since 2018. These solutions are powered by the most advanced evolution of Microsoft Azure.

Olivier Blum, Executive Vice President Energy Management at Schneider Electric, said: “This is great recognition of the collaborative impact we are making together to tackle climate change. We are at a critical juncture; unless immediate action is taken to reduce emissions, we will shortly pass the point of no return. Companies are central to avoiding this; that is why collaborations such as this are needed to supercharge innovation efforts and create the technology which can turn the tide.”

Recent projects with Microsoft include IntenCity; opened in 2021, Schneider’s flagship ‘Building of the Future’ uses EcoStruxure solutions with Azure to deliver building intelligence by collecting 60,000 data points every two minutes. This allows IntenCity to use predictive data for smart building management and energy flexibility, for maximum reliability and resiliency.
