Schneider Electric named a market leader in navigant research leaderboard report for building energy management systems

April 1, 2015

DALLAS – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, received the highest scores in Navigant Research’s Leaderboard Report of Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS). The report, which analyzed 14 companies’ BEMS offerings, recognized Schneider Electric for offering “one of the broadest energy management platforms available.”

Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare™ software was recognized for its advanced features that extend beyond a traditional building management system. In addition to providing an energy analytics platform, StruxureWare offers a full picture of energy and sustainability data at both local and global levels. It can also integrate control, operation and enterprise-level applications that enable the analytics engine to maximize operational efficiency at all levels, giving customers the ability to proactively plan energy investments and monitor their return – features not often included in competitive offerings.

Due to the breadth of its solutions, Schneider Electric can provide building stakeholders and facility managers with a solution that is right-sized for their organization’s needs, regardless of whether they occupy large-scale buildings, an enterprise of small buildings or a standalone small- or medium-sized building that makes up less than 100,000 square feet. Particularly powerful for global enterprises, the software provides site-level analytics capabilities as well as enterprise-level rollups, accommodating hundreds of resource streams.

“The Navigant report reflects Schneider Electric’s dedication to and long legacy in energy and sustainability management,” said Steve Wilhite, Senior Vice President of Energy and Sustainability Services, Schneider Electric. “Our expertise can help drive more efficient operations and stronger return on investment for leaders in diverse parts of enterprise operations and management. StruxureWare is a key factor in breaking down informational silos by sharing access to intelligent and actionable insights across the organization.” 

“BEMS is an intensely competitive market that will double in size over the next six years,” said Casey Talon, Principal Research Analyst, Navigant Research. “Schneider Electric has established itself as a key competitor by expanding its higher-level analytics capabilities in the last five years.” 

Companies’ scores were based on 10 criteria spanning strategy and execution, including go-to-market strategy, partnership strategy, user interface, interoperability and scalability. The report also highlighted Schneider Electric’s global focus and “continued expansion into high-growth markets” as differentiators.
