Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, continues to promote its EcoStruxure Solutions Suite as a means to transform cities, reshape industries and enrich lives. As the world becomes more and more connected, Schneider Electric is paving the way for households and businesses to embrace technology and become more progressive through efficient energy management and automation.


Thirty years ago, humanity envisioned a future that is dominated by technology, improving the quality of life, making things simpler, and being able to do more. Fast forward to now, technology has evolved from being just a simple tool to becoming our partner everyday, transforming the way we live, elevating the way we work, and innovating the way we experience. What if there was a way to adopt that on a macro level? Transforming how infrastructures function, improving how businesses operate, and making smart cities and industries out of existing ones. With Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Solutions Suite, all these are possible.

In a little over a year, Schneider Electric has launched innovative products in the Philippine market including the Guest Room Management System, Smart Panels, Compact NSXm, PowerTag, which are all under the EcoStruxure Solutions Suite. As it strengthens its commitment to providing Innovation at Every Level, these innovations help generate data that can be used to track energy consumption, identify electrical pain points, and even create plans to resolve these problems. By granting cities and industries access to these information, they have an opportunity to move the Philippines forward as a progressive nation; as a Smart Nation.

During his recent visit to Manila, Luc Remont, Executive Vice President for International Operations, Schneider Electric said: “What EcoStruxure brings is the ability to bring together the technologies that are necessary to make these infrastructure efficient, enabled by digital softwares. To make them more efficient, reliable, corresponding to the needs of the customers.”

Schneider Electric also reaches out to local communities to conduct trainings and seminars that can help equip local electricians with the necessary knowledge of their products and solutions. Through these efforts, local electricians can better understand how energy can be managed and how savings can be earned from it.

Remont shared: “In every single country, we have a training program that is dedicated to students, to partners, to anyone who wants to be exposed to new technologies because this is part of our duties to the community — to make sure that the last stage of technology can be embraced, understood and operated by everyone.”

Schneider Electric is committed to helping the Philippines become a global example for sustainability and innovation by continuously producing technologies that can ensure that Life Is On for everyone, every time.
