• Collaboration to accelerate the deployment of sustainable and smart energy manage-ment solutions
• Complementary portfolios in medium and high-voltage technologies to provide greater customer value
Hitachi Energy, a market and technology leader in transmission, distribution and grid automa-tion solutions, and Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy man-agement and automation, announced today that they have entered into a collaboration to pro-vide greater customer value and accelerate the energy transition.
The non-exclusive collaboration will support customers’ sustainability efforts, including the decarbonization of the energy and industrial sectors. Hitachi Energy can leverage Schneider Electric’s medium-voltage portfolio, while Schneider Electric will be able to use Hitachi Ener-gy’s high-voltage portfolio to provide more comprehensive offerings.
This new collaboration builds on the trusted track record, global footprint, and extensive expe-rience of both these sustainable energy technology leaders in delivering projects for renewa-bles, data centers, mining and other industry segments. Both companies expect this collabo-rative ecosystem to ensure benefits for customers across their operational life cycle, including a more holistic offering, strengthened supply chain and enhanced efficiencies.
“We continue to innovate with technology and business models to advance a more sustaina-ble, flexible and secure energy system,” said Claudio Facchin, CEO of Hitachi Energy. ”We have chosen to collaborate with Schneider Electric by enhancing our complementary portfoli-os and address the need of faster deployment of grid solutions for our customers,” he added.
“We are launching this collaboration to help our customers deploy the green electricity solu-tions instrumental in the fight against climate change,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, Schneider Electric. “With Hitachi Energy, we’re committed to leveraging our respec-tive strengths in order to solve our customers’ most pressing energy challenges.”
