Schneider Electric receives Microsoft's 2022 Energy & Sustainability Partner of the Year Award

July 5, 2022

Schneider Electric won the Energy & Sustainability 2022 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award. Schneider was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for its EcoStruxure software solutions provided to customers that were powered by Microsoft technology, including Azure Cloud and Dynamics 365.

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services and devices during the past year. Out of more than 3,900 submissions from more than 100 countries across various categories, Schneider Electric was recognized for its solutions and services in energy and sustainability.

In 2021, Schneider’s EcoStruxure solutions helped customers reduce their carbon emissions by 84 million tons, which amounts to 347 million tons saved or avoided since 2018. These solutions are powered by Microsoft Azure, helping customers achieve their energy and sustainability objectives through the power of electric and digital solutions.

Olivier Blum, executive vice president energy management at Schneider Electric, said “Receiving the 2022 Microsoft Energy & Sustainability Partner of the Year Award is a great recognition of the collaborative impact we are making together, to tackle climate change. We are at a critical juncture. Unless immediate action is taken to reduce emissions, we will shortly pass the point of no return. Companies are central to avoiding this; however, alone the impact will not be enough. That is why collaborations such as the one between Schneider and Microsoft are needed to supercharge innovation efforts and create the technology which can turn the tide.

Schneider Electric and Microsoft have been working together for more than 30 years. The longevity and success continue to be fueled by a shared vision for energy efficiency and sustainability, the companies say. The ability to accelerate progress comes from the unique expertise that both Microsoft and Schneider can bring, but it is the collaboration that will take sustainability efforts the extra mile, they add.

“I am honored to announce Schneider Electric as the 2022 Microsoft Energy & Sustainability Partner,” said Nick Parker, corporate vice president of global partner solutions at Microsoft. “Schneider Electric were outstanding among the exceptional pool of nominees. We were extraordinarily impressed by the innovative use of Microsoft Cloud technologies as part of its EcoStruxure software solutions.”
