ENGIE and Schneider Electric have announced they will work together to maximise the potential of technology within the renewable energy industry.

The pair have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore and deploy new digital solutions for operational efficiency of renewable assets.

Areas including asset management, remote monitoring and diagnostics and cybersecurity in a complex ecosystem will be investigated as part of the agreement.

“ENGIE’s objective is to develop remote supervision and control of its global renewable energy production assets, and possibly other energy assets as well, to optimize their performance. We are working in close collaboration with Schneider Electric with a shared vision of the challenges of an energy world that is decarbonized, digitalized and decentralized,” specified Didier Holleaux, Executive Vice President of ENGIE.

Philippe Delorme, Executive Vice President, Building & IT, Schneider Electric, added: “Schneider Electric leverages its software solutions to address and solve customer needs in new and efficient ways, which will now benefit to ENGIE, a great business partner of Schneider Electric over the past decade. Our combined technology and industry expertise can help identify new opportunities on how to better serve the energy market, while providing greater access to affordable, clean energy.”
