Schneider Electric awarded top energy ranking

Posted on 25 Apr 2013 by The Manufacturer

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, has been recognised as one of the top three most "Competitively Positioned PV Inverter Companies" by new research.

GTM Research  conducted the findings for their most recent study of the Global PV Inverter Landscape and found the global supplier, operating in more than 100 countries, fitted its criteria.

“This is a great recognition of the positioning of Schneider Electric as a leading company in the solar power conversion market,” noted Laurent Bataille, SVP for the Solar Business of Schneider Electric.

“This ranking of Schneider Electric as one of the leading specialized inverter manufacturers is a reflection of the changes at play in the solar industry.”

Mr Bataille cited the wave of bankruptcies and consolodations prevalent in the solar energy market, and feels Schneider Electric is a uniquely bankable PV supplier.

“In the new phase of the solar market a few major criteria are now influencing customers’ decisions on their power conversion choices: bankability, global capabilities, competitive & reliable solutions,” he added.

The company also reaffirmed its commitment to investing in the market, and expects to unveil new product ranges throughout the next two years.

Schneider will sponsor The Manufacturer’s Future Factory: Energy Conference 2013 in Birmingham on July 16.


Industrial users are going to have to bear the brunt as governments around the world struggle to bring down carbon emissions.
