  • 2 The Global Specialist in Energy Management delivering innovative solutions and projects worldwide Make your grid smarter with easy migration to international standards How Schneider Electric smart grid-ready products and solutions help balance your grid equation Electricity markets are changing and becoming increasingly complex. And every day, end-users’ expectations increase in terms of reliability and quality, and they gain greater awareness of energy’s environmental impact. It’s an evolution. But as our reliance on electricity grows globally, the ways in which we produce, distribute, and use energy must also evolve. The solution will not only involve smarter demand, but also smarter supply — and as such, a smarter grid is at the heart of the issue. As The Global Specialist in Energy Management™, Schneider Electric™ is smart grid-ready, enabling the products and solutions that support and connect the five key domains of a smarter grid: > Flexible distribution > Smart Generation > Demand-side management > Efficient homes (including electric vehicles) > Efficient enterprise (buildings, industrial facilities, and data centres) Our vision isn’t just to connect our customers to the smart grid — but to also connect them with each other, facilitating smarter interactions and leading to increased energy management capabilities through seamless system interoperability. ¤24billion sales in 2012 41%of sales in new economies* creating access to safe and reliable energy 140000people in 100+ countries 4-5%of sales devoted to R&D *New economies include Africa and the Middle East, Eastern Europe (including Russia), Latin America and Mexico, and Asia without Japan.
