In addition to improving business-oriented sustainability, EcoStruxure is helping to solve the energy paradox as well with innovative, corporate social responsibility solutions that close the energy gap. For example, Schneider Electric has partnered with Microsoft to bring reliable power to over 200 schools and healthcare clinics throughout Nigeria.
By electrifying schools and medical clinics with clean, reliable, solar power, Microsoft and Schneider Electric are empowering life-changing solutions worldwide — and enlightening the future for millions. African Energy brought on highly trained local Nigerian partners to lead this project with the Lagos State Electricity Board (LSEB) throughout 170 sites. The solution was carried out in two phases.
In phase one, African Energy supplied all products directly, while phase two was run through a bidding process directed by Crown Agents for DFID. Schneider Electric’s Conext family of solar and battery-based inverter/charger system with Conext Insight online monitoring was selected as the most reliable technology for this initiative.
