Chancellor of the exchequer Alistair Darling paid a visit to Schneider Electric's manufacturing facilities in Telford, on the same day Labour unveiled its manifesto for the general election.

The minister met with key representatives from the company to learn about the business' approach to energy management and understand how government policy can be used to achieve greater energy saving and environmental benefits.

As part of the visit, Alistair Darling was taken on a site tour to see the company's products in operation, integral to its energy efficiency offer. This included metering, lighting controls, building management systems and variable speed drives.

Rodney Turtle, strategic marketing director from Schneider Electric comments: "This was a significant day for Schneider Electric and illustrates our strength as an influencer in the field of energy management. The visit from Alistair Darling provided us with an opportunity to talk about viable options that will help the government meet its climate change targets to lower carbon emissions and improve the UK's environmental performance. In addition, the minister was able to gain first hand experience of how manufacturers are tackling energy issues to help influence government policy."
