Schneider Electric and its recently acquired Telvent have collaborated to develop and introduce an integrated suite of solutions to improve the efficiency and sustainability of urban infrastructures, leading to more livable cities.
The cost of building, improving or maintaining infrastructure to keep up with growing demand is the most significant challenge that cities face today. Globally, urbanization is occurring at an increasingly quick pace and this means that local governments need solutions to improve the efficiency and sustainability of city systems that are affordable, easy to deploy and manage, and can cover all of their needs.
SmartCity is a unique offering that includes:
Smart Grid: solutions that help cities to manage growing demand for electricity and integrate renewable energy sources while improving customer service through improved network efficiency and reduced energy consumption and emissions.
Smart Mobility: Solutions that offer better management of multi-modal transit networks and fewer disruptions to service.
Smart Water: solutions that provide tools to help cities manage water networks more efficiently and offer them greater resiliency against hazards
Smart Public Services: solutions that helps cities to efficiently manage public safety, street lighting, healthcare and government administration.
Smart Building and Homes: tools, including energy and environmental monitoring and visualization, that help cities optimize resource consumption for office buildings, datacenters, industrial facilities, hospitals, universities and residential homes, resulting in reduced emissions and energy consumption and improved resident engagement.
According to Telvent’s Chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, “SmartCity is a unified solution from Schneider Electric and Telvent bringing together our unmatched expertise in improving infrastructure for cities worldwide, ranging from mature cities in developed countries to hypergrowth cities in emerging regions. The result for our customers is greater efficiency at all levels of the city and improved quality of life for their residents, leading to more livable and sustainable cities.”
