ENGIE, Schneider Energy Digitization Pact
Monday, February 27, 2017 @ 06:02 PM gHale
Schneider Electric and electric utility ENGIE 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.
Asset management, SCADA obsolescence management, remote monitoring and diagnostics and cybersecurity in a complex ecosystem will also be a part of the agreement.
“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,” said Didier Holleaux, ENGIE executive vice president.
“Schneider Electric leverages its software solutions to address and solve customer needs in new and efficient ways, which will now benefit ENGIE … 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 at Schneider Electric.
Schneider Electric is already ENGIE’s strategic partner for real-time monitoring and management of its European wind and solar power installations. This partnership demonstrates ENGIE’s goal to accelerate its digitization globally.
