Schneider Electric named a leader in building energy management software by independent analyst

Independent analyst Verdantix has named global energy management specialist Schneider Electric a leader in its 2015 Green Quadrant Building Energy Management Software report.

This is the second consecutive year that Schneider Electric has been identified as a leader in the report.

The strong showing was a result of Verdantix’s review of Schneider Electric’s energy management and sustainability platform, StruxureWare™ Resource Advisor. Resource Advisor was again rated best-in-class for its strength in the categories of carbon reporting functionality, energy procurement, risk management, and utility bill management.

Resource Advisor made significant advancements in the area of real-time data analytics due to its Performance Analytics suite of functionality that was introduced earlier this year.

“Once again, Schneider Electric has separated itself as a leader in our Building Energy Management Software report,” said Derrek Clarke, industry analyst, Verdantix.

“For global firms seeking a comprehensive energy management strategy, Schneider Electric should be placed on the shortlist of partners.”

Resource Advisor is Schneider Electric’s cloud-based, comprehensive Software-as-a-Service platform that increases collaboration, efficiency, and transparency with a single software system.

Resource Advisor can be used by the client, or as a means to enable remote energy and sustainability management.

“Being recognised as a leader for the second year in a row by Verdantix is great validation for the work we are doing to provide the best possible solution for our clients,” said Steve Wilhite, Senior Vice President, energy and sustainability services, Schneider Electric.

The Green Quadrant report combines benchmark data from 27 suppliers, responses to a 130-point questionnaire and interviews with an independent panel of 17 customers across seven industries, who have bought or are planning to buy building energy management software.

This report provides guidance for senior executives and decision-makers, including CFOs, directors of energy, facilities and real estate and heads of procurement.
