Capgemini and Schneider Electric collaborate to help companies achieve energy optimization

by

Schneider Electric, leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, and Capgemini, a global leader in business and technology transformation services, today announced a new collaboration in energy optimization. Designed to help organizations accelerate their journey towards smarter and greener facility management and energy efficiency, the Energy Command Center leverages a unique end-to-end combination of digital solutions and cutting-edge technologies, to both simplify energy management and optimize its consumption.

ECCAccording to IEA’s analysis, energy has accounted for more than three-quarters of global greenhouse gas emissions in recent years. Clean electricity, combined with the digitization of energy management technology, is critical to accelerate energy transition.

The Energy Command Center solution, developed by Capgemini and powered by Schneider Electric, is an integrated and centralized platform to monitor, control and optimize all building assets consuming energy including data centers or critical environment rooms. The platform combines advanced artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning logics and algorithms, and the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to measure and predict various metrics like energy intensity, health of critical assets, critical operations, renewable energy generation, and the overall performance across all energy assets.

Schneider Electric’s leading connected products, edge control, and advisory applications help organizations efficiently manage their energy supply across multiple assets, such as factories, offices, or other infrastructure, while also reducing energy consumption across their operations in one integrated platform. Capgemini brings its expertise in data integration and processing, AI and machine learning, and the integration of all products and software in a central decision-making platform.

Using real-time energy consumption and carbon emission data combined with modular and interoperable building management software and systems, the Energy Command Center helps to lower energy consumption and spend to help achieve organizational goals while accelerating towards a net-zero future.

A prototype of the solution has been tested since 2022 across Capgemini’s operations in India, which account for about a quarter of the Capgemini Group’s energy footprint, enabling real-time monitoring and efficient control of energy supply across multiple assets, while also reducing and optimizing energy consumption across operations in one integrated, centralized platform. With a 29% reduction in energy consumption in 2023 (versus 2019) tracked across Capgemini’s eight main campuses located in India, the platform is making a material contribution to the Capgemini Group’s objectives to decarbonize its operations.
