Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, will today organize a special “Energy Day” event in Abuja.
The event which will feature the Minister of State for Power, Mr. Nuhu Wya, as a keynote speaker, is aimed at unveiling Schneider Electric’s latest world class innovative energy solutions to a target audience of investors, technical experts, industry regulators both in the power and oil and gas sectors among others.
Speaking ahead of the event, Mr. Marcel Hochet, Country President, Schneider Electric Nigeria said “Schneider Electric is proud to organise the Energy Day 2011 in Abuja. It is an opportunity for us to once again demonstrate our leadership position in providing global energy solutions through innovation”.
Schneider Electric has continued to drive efficiency in energy management across the globe through innovation and expansion of market. It will be recalled that Schneider Electric recently acquired Areva D, a global energy solutions provider, to strengthen its capacity to meet rising energy needs.
Together Schneider Electric’s medium voltage and Areva T&D Distribution activities form a dedicated business for MV: Energy. Schneider Electric is accelerating its path to become the global specialist in energy management and a world leader in the field of power distribution, as well as in Smart Grid.
Energy will be Schneider Electric’s centre of excellence, for every product, every system and all services towards utilities and electro intensive customers. The Areva T&D Distribution activity perfectly complements the existing Medium Voltage business. It has the complementary assets for Schneider Electric to succeed together as a leader in medium voltage and network automation.
The new five lines of business which span Primary Distribution, Secondary Distribution, Transformers, Automation and Services come in handy in the areas of energy management, efficient electricity distribution, protection of existing networks and ensuring continuity of quality power supply in Nigeria.
