The energy transition could be about to pick up quite a bit of speed, after Hitachi Energy and Schneider Electric announced a partnership to better support customers’ sustainability efforts.
As two juggernauts of the electrical industry, Hitachi Energy and Schneider Electric are partnering to provide greater customer value and accelerate the energy transition. They believe they can achieve this by helping customers achieve their sustainability goals, including the decarbonisation of the energy and industrial sectors.
Hitachi Energy plans to leverage Schneider Electric’s medium-voltage portfolio, while Schneider Electric will be able to use Hitachi Energy’s high-voltage portfolio to provide more comprehensive offerings.
This new collaboration builds on the trusted track record, global footprint, and extensive experience of both companies in delivering projects for renewables, data centres, mining and other industry segments. Both companies expect this collaborative 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 sustainable, flexible and secure energy system,” said Claudio Facchin, CEO of Hitachi Energy.
“We have chosen to collaborate with Schneider Electric by enhancing our complementary portfolios and addressing the need for faster deployment of grid solutions for our customers.”
“We are launching this collaboration to help our customers deploy the green electricity solutions 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 respective strengths in order to solve our customers’ most pressing energy challenges.”
