PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings, Better Plants Challenge partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI), and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline.  Schneider Electric's portfolio consists of 43 facilities as of 2019. With an energy intensity improvement of 11.1% since its baseline year of 2016, Schneider Electric is half way to its 20% reduction in energy intensity target in 2028. An aspect of Schneider Electric's energy management program is their internal Facilities Management group. They work with Schneider’s Energy & Sustainability Services to send teams of specialized energy experts to plants to perform assessments and identify energy savings opportunities.  From these assessments, plant personnel develop Energy Action Plans which guide energy efficiency investments at the plant level.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY FACILITY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Schneider Electric has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at more than 18 of its facilities. There are 10 facilities that have experienced an increase in Source EUI.  These facilities have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.            
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                            
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                    
                            
                    
                    
                    
                    
            

METHOD FOR CALCULATING ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Schneider Electric normalizes energy data for each facility using the GA Tech’s EnPI tool, which allows Schneider Electric to adjust energy data to account for variations in weather and production. The absolute change and percent change in energy use, production output, and energy intensity are tracked for each plant on both a monthly and annual basis. These metrics are rolled up to the corporate level, with a percent improvement in energy intensity calculated by taking a weighted average of the percent change in energy intensity at the individual facilities.
