RUEIL-MALMAISON, France, July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been honored at the Greek Energy Mastering Awards 2022 with the Energy Efficient Solution of the Year award.
The Greek Energy Mastering Awards 2022 recognize best practices in responsible energy use in their quest for a sustainable energy future. Winners are chosen based on their ability to engage customers to continually improve their energy and environmental performance, including increasing energy efficiency and reducing operating costs.
The Energy Efficiency Solution of the Year was awarded to Schneider Electric for the successful solutions and partnerships developed by the company to achieve the most efficient energy management and improve the energy efficiency of the infrastructure of cities (Smart Cities).
In the “Energy efficient and energy-efficient products, technologies and services” category, Schneider Electric stood out for its medium voltage, SF6– SM AirSeT free fitting. The award was due to its contribution to reducing consumer operating costs and its ability to support a sustainable environment. Green and digital MV switchgear works with the new SF6-energy-free MV technology that uses clean air and vacuum innovation to eliminate the need for the most potent greenhouse gas in the power grid and building power grids.
Schneider Electric pursues its mission to help organizations achieve net zero through innovative and green products. SM AirSeT is the green and digital secondary AIS MT equipment designed specifically for commercial and industrial buildings and critical infrastructure. The technology has been successfully tested in many power utilities, across infrastructure and buildings, by customers such as E.ON in SwedenGreenAlp in FranceCEE Engie New Caledonia and Azienda Trasporti Milanesi in Italy.
Delivering on the promise of building a comprehensive SF portfolio6– free offers, SM AirSeT belongs to Schneider’s SF range6– free MV switchgear, which also includes RM AirSeT – secondary gas insulated (GIS) ring main unit (RMU) for network operators; and GM AirSeT – a primary GIS for more demanding applications.
Schneider’s success at the Greek Energy Mastering Awards underscores that the availability and reliable high performance of these long-awaited clean technologies makes the current effort to revise EU F-gas policy timely and achievable. If adopted in the future, a revised European policy restricting the use of SF6 would represent a key step in the sprint to successfully meet European climate targets as the window to a +1.5°C future closes rapidly. SM AirSeT is ready for this opportunity.
