Schneider Electric, a global leader in energy management automation and digital transformation, announces the return of its Mobile Innovation Hub at this year’s WETEX. The Innovation Hub will showcase crucial advances in technologies for utilities, particularly in grid, water, and solar energy. WETEX will take place in Dubai from October 21 to October 23.
The focus on digital transformations in utilities continues to grow in the region, with Dubai leading the charge. Among the key growth areas for this work lies in the Geographical Information Systems (GIS). DEWA recently upgraded its GIS system, providing the ability to visualize, navigate, and manage smart grid.
Smart grids bridge the supply and demand of future cities
The Innovation Hub will welcome guests to experience EcoStruxure™, Schneider’s open architecture platform that will showcase connected products as well as edge control software. As a platform, EcoStruxure™ can bridge the need for efficiency from the supply side of energy distribution, while managing the demand from organizations and users.
Highlights of the experiential tour consist of interactive demos of some of the factors that drive sustainable transformations within utilities. The immersive overview is aimed at exploring the specific optimizations in areas such as buildings, water, and data centers as well as sustainable grids and energy-as-a-service. Underpinning all of these will be the transformative power of IoT, cybersecurity, and data analytics.
“The UAE continues to demonstrate that the sustainability challenges can be addressed through digital solutions”, says Ahmed Fateen, Power Systems VP for Gulf. “We now live in a world where smart grids are no longer potential future – they are the reality. This has been enabled by the digitized systems that control utilities through monitoring and analyzing the enormous volume of data. As we continue to drive this digital transformation forward, we remain vigilant over cyber security and data integrity. Ultimately, in addition to driving sustainability, it is crucial to ensure solutions are reliable, secure, and cost-efficient.
The role that connected products play in smart cities directly impacts the decision making of executives with the access to rich, real-time data that can be actioned upon instantaneously. Schneider Electric’s leading software solutions effectively help bridge the gap between traditional operations and enterprise systems making seamless integration possible while enhancing the overall output with maximum efficiency.
