Schneider Electric is named a leader in building energy management software

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has been named a leader for the second year running in the Green Quadrant report on building energy management software prepared by independent analyst Verdantix. The result was due to Verdantix’s review of the energy-management and sustainability platform StruxureWare Resource Advisor, which 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 advances in real-time analysis with the Performance Analytics suite of functionality introduced earlier in 2015.

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 which have bought or are planning to buy building energy management software.

Steve Wilhite, senior vice president for energy and sustainability services with Schneider Electric, commented, ‘Being recognised as a leader for the second year in a row by Verdantix is a great validation for the work we are doing to provide the best possible solution for our clients. Resource Advisor provides clients with actionable data that drives deeper and more meaningful insight into their energy and sustainability initiatives.’
