28/12/2021 08:30:36 bp, a global integrated energy company and Schneider Electric, a leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, recognized as the World’s Most Sustainable Company in 2021 by Corporate Knights, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to help decarbonize high energy emission customers in Australia, European Union, UK and USA.
Under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding, bp and Schneider Electric intend to combine their skills and capabilities to define and scale integrated energy solutions for cities and commercial and industrial customers in hard-to-reduce sectors such as transportation and high-emission industries. heavy.
Combining the expertise of bp and Schneider Electric in the consulting, design, construction and operation of decarbonized energy systems will help companies achieve their decarbonization goals. In addition, bp and Schneider Electric intend to explore business models that enable clients to reduce the complexity, risk, and capital investment of decarbonization by operating such energy systems as a service.
William Lin, executive vice president of regions, cities and solutions at bp, commented:“Schneider Electric’s expertise complements ours, opening up more opportunities for us to jointly assist in the decarbonization of energy systems. Combining bp power supply capabilities with bp microgrids and Schneider Electric energy management technologies means that together we can offer clean, efficient, and robust solutions to better meet the needs of our customers.”
“Many of our clients are looking for innovation and expertise to help decarbonize their energy supply and demand systems,” afirma Barbara Frei, Executive Vice President, Industrial Automation, Schneider Electric.“With bp, we are committed to advancing technology solutions and tackling key markets together to help these customers reach zero faster.”
Schneider Electric will bring its expertise in decarbonization and electricity 4.0 technologies to help design and operate energy-critical or energy-intensive power systems. Schneider Electric’s microgrid platform can integrate onsite renewable energy, reliable backup systems, including battery storage, electric vehicle infrastructure and associated retail energy services.
bp brings together technologies and companies such as solar, wind, hydrogen, biofuels and electric vehicle charging, to offer innovative, integrated and decarbonized energy solutions at scale to help cities and large enterprises reduce their carbon emissions. bp and Schneider Electric intend to collaborate on integrated solutions and technologies that address today’s most complex energy challenges, to help accelerate the world’s transition to grid zero.
