Carrefour Egypt reduces carbon footprint with Schneider facility advisor
EcoStruxure Facility Advisor provides continuous insights on energy consumption and on power usage optimization
Schneider Electric has revealed the deployment of its EcoStruxure Facility Advisor solution, which helps monitor energy use and asset availability and enhance efficiency, across 19 Carrefour stores in Egypt, operated by Majid Al Futtaim.
The company has deployed the Facility Advisor suite of services in 19 hypermarkets and supermarkets and is planning to roll it out to all stores.
Carrefour started collaborating with Schneider Electric in 2016 to find solutions to reduce power consumption.
Facility Advisor is a cloud–based platform which provides insights on consumption and alerts on electrical distribution quality.
It helps eliminate power losses by detecting abnormal energy consumption of the connected assets and allowing actions to minimise unplanned breakdowns.
It also assists in validating electrical costs on invoices by providing details on facility loads.
Jean Luc Graziato, country head for Carrefour Egypt at Majid Al Futtaim Retail said: “This project with Schneider, is aligned with Majid Al Futtaim’s wider strategy to become ‘net positive’ by reducing its energy consumption and carbon emissions. Apart from the environmental benefits, the cost effectiveness of implementing Facility Advisor also allows us to redistribute savings to enhance various aspects of our business, making our offering even more compelling for customers.”
