Digital energy multinational Schneider Electric has reiterated its commitment to sustainable energy by sharing approaches that deliver clean and resilient energy globally.
The company, in a statement on Thursday, said the microgrid event was to address how industry experts, through software and technologies, are making the digital and electric world a reality.
Hosted in the US, the event was attended by Schneider Electric Group CEO Jean-Pascal Tricoire and leading microgrid pioneers.
He stated: “Organizations around the world can accelerate digital transformation by choosing the right technologies to achieve a wide range of sustainability goals, such as microgrids.”
Speaking to reporters about the company’s goal of improving the world of energy, a microgrid expert from Schneider Electric, Teina Teibowei, mentioned that carbon emissions from the electricity sector in Nigeria reached around 11.7 million metric tons. of carbon dioxide in 2020.
She said: “Existing technologies can reduce these emissions by 70 percent and design a healthier energy world for humans around the world.”
According to her, with the recent sustainability dilemma facing the world, the rapid transformations in technology in all sectors and the tripling of automobiles, among others, are technologies that are trusted.
He added that there was a growing demand for more energy than the technology of the 20th century for the technological advancement of energy.
Schneider Electric regional product applications engineer Babajide Ogunlesi said the use of microgrids was essential to solving the energy challenge in Nigeria.
Ogunlesi said: “By paving a sustainable path to electrification, the microgrid provides innovative energy solutions to drive profitability for homes and organizations.
A key point to keep in mind when building a microgrid, which is to start with an appropriately sized microgrid design to optimize profitability, is that there is no one-size-fits-all microgrid.
“It is essential to correctly size the microgrid in the design phase so that it provides measurable energy cost efficiency. Factors to consider are the specific load to feed, the load requirements at any given time, and the sources of demand.”
