Energy Management From Schneider Electric

Energy provider: The IT/OT gap is one of the single largest challenges facing utilities today. Companies look to take real-time data from the control room and turn it into actionable insights for decision makers to improve grid reliability and efficiency.

Schneider Electric looks to continue its role as a leading partner in solving these challenges with the latest release of its ADMS platform, ADMS 3.4.

Schneider Electric’s ADMS has already proven to be an indispensable tool of the smart grid era and with this release extends its value through new features uniting operational and information technology:

  • Seamlessly integrated Mobile Field Client extending realtime operations with geospatial intelligence to the field
  • Enhanced Model Promotion management providing workflow synchronization and integrity of network model changes from GIS and other sources
  • Historical Analytics Service providing decision support for improved grid reliability and efficiency through offline analysis of all real-time data
  • Comprehensive and configurable Work Order Management for planned and unplanned network operations

According to Laurent Vernerey, Schneider Electric executive vice president of End User Business, “Enabling utilities to extend and improve operations in order to become more efficient and remain successful through today’s rapid smart grid development is key. We’re proud to be at the forefront of technology innovation when it comes to the smart grid, which only furthers our commitment to overall grid reliability.”

Schneider Electric’s ADMS maximizes benefits from a growing foundation of intelligent grid devices and is currently deployed in 29 countries, serving 88 million customers. It received a “strong positive” rating, the highest possible from Gartner Inc., the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, in their 2012 and 2013 reports, MarketScope for Advanced Distribution Management Systems.
