MISSISSAUGA, ON. – April 15, 2015 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, received the highest scores in Navigant Research’s Leaderboard Report of Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS). The report, which analyzed 14 companies’ BEMS offerings, recognized Schneider Electric for offering “one of the broadest energy management platforms available.”
Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare™ software was recognized for its advanced features that extend beyond a traditional building management system. In addition to providing an energy analytics platform, StruxureWare offers a full picture of energy and sustainability data at both local and global levels. It can also integrate control, operation and enterprise-level applications that enable the analytics engine to maximize operational efficiency at all levels, giving customers the ability to proactively plan energy investments and monitor their return – features not often included in competitive offerings.
Due to the breadth of its solutions, Schneider Electric can provide building stakeholders and facility managers with a solution that is right-sized for their organization’s needs, regardless of whether they occupy large-scale buildings, an enterprise of small buildings or a standalone small- or medium-sized building that makes up less than 100,000 square feet. Particularly powerful for global enterprises, the software provides site-level analytics capabilities as well as enterprise-level rollups, accommodating hundreds of resource streams.
“The Navigant report reflects Schneider Electric’s dedication to and long legacy in energy and sustainability management,” said Alan Taaffe, director, marketing and business development for buildings, Schneider Electric Canada. “Our expertise can help drive more efficient operations and stronger return on investment for leaders in diverse parts of enterprise operations and management.
