STAFF REPORT IBD: Saving energy and in the long protecting environment by installing lights that switch off when not required is the kind of energy-efficient technology Pakistan requires. Schneider Electrics SmartCity tools have such technology solutions to save electricity and energy up to 30%. Schneider Electric operates in more than 100 countries and some 230 cities around the world.
“Smart technologies can reduce global emissions by 15% and save up to US$900 billion per year in energy costs annually,” reveals Smart 2020 report published by Accenture in 2011.
It said that for such effective solutions, Schneider Electric won the Zayed Future Energy Prize of 2012 and they will be participating in the 6th World Future Energy Summit (WFES) being held from January 15-17, 2013.
“This is the year of smart cities. Our focus for WFES 2013 is on solutions that improve our surrounding environments. With urbanization expanding at lightning speed,” said Goktug Gur, the Country President for UAE, Oman and Pakistan.
The SmartCity technology has SmartGrid solutions that match challenges put by electricity demands and energy requirements. SmartMobility facilitates resident mobility and electro-voltaic (EV) solutions.
Pakistan requires such kind of smart energy solutions, which not only produces energy, but also gives better consumption procedures to save electricity and stop wastage of energy resources.
