At Schneider Electric, our mission is to serve our customers by developing innovative products and solutions that simplify the lives of those who use them. We bring together our expertise and solutions to drive new possibilities for efficiency and savings. As the global specialist in energy management and automation, we are committed to worldwide improvement in connectivity, sustainability, efficiency, and reliability and safety in five primary areas: in our homes, cities, industries, buildings and in the cloud.
Within a smart city, an intelligent network of physical infrastructure devices gathers real-time information throughout city transportation, building, and energy delivery systems. The data gathered enables both city officials and citizens to save time and cut costs. Schneider Electric solutions result in up to 30% in energy savings, 20% reduction in water losses, 30% reduction in street crime, and a 20% reduction in travel time. Our technologies connect the city to those citizens who live in it.
Traffic congestion, increased CO2, and noise pollution are all issues that will get worse unless new approaches and technologies are applied. We support sustainable cities by providing electric vehicle recharging, whether in the garages of private homes, in public lots and even in seaports. Marine vessels that come to shore must adhere to codes for reduced fuel consumption and low emissions, noise, and vibrations. Our solutions address ship to shore power distribution so that ports are cleaner and safer.
