Results
of Green Quadrant Analysis

Using its
proprietary Green Quadrant methodology, Verdantix assessed Schneider Electric’s
IoT offerings that are used in approximately
250,000 buildings across more than 10,000 customers. Based on the Green
Quadrant analysis, Verdantix identified four key strengths in Schneider
Electric Advisor offerings, including the following:

  • Comprehensive energy management,
    spanning power consumption, and generation assets:
    EcoStruxure Resource
    Advisor was recognized for its ability to
    empower
    portfolio managers to monitor energy across portfolios of any size and create
    energy forecast models. The EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor optimizes the
    performance of microgrids using machine learning, providing better insight into
    power consumption to make impactful changes to both occupant comfort along with
    overall sustainability.
  • Sustainability and carbon
    reporting:

    EcoStruxure Resource Advisor also was well scored for its strong sustainability
    solutions, including providing emissions data and carbon reporting through
    sustainability dashboards. Users closely track their sustainability performance
    against their target goals, such as Scope 3 GHG emissions or Science Based
    Targets initiative (SBTi) goals. Even as requirements of sustainability change
    and advance, CarbonMaps is a future-proof solution to providing carbon data
    management reports.
  • Predictive
    maintenance for assets:
    EcoStruxure
    Building Advisor’s comprehensive asset monitoring and predictive maintenance
    analyzes energy consumption, HVAC performance, continuous fault detection, and
    diagnostics to drive energy savings. This technology leverages digital twin
    models of 22 types of building assets and anonymously compares over 200,000 pieces of equipment to ensure lower usage and ensure the
    longevity of building equipment and technology.
  • Retail portfolio management:
    EcoStruxure Integrated Retail Management provides portfolio managers with both
    global and granular views of metrics, like footfall, conditions, and energy
    consumption, to remotely manage and track their retail sites. The insight
    provided allows retailers to make more impactful choices around technology and
    equipment choices. According to Verdantix analysis, the software is “one of the
    very few IoT offerings in this study dedicated to retail – to manage locations
    centrally. The solution allows portfolio managers to gain a global perspective
    of all their stores, as well as track and manage these at a more granular level.
    (…) The solution has already been deployed by a leading fast food restaurant
    chain and a household goods retailer.”
