76% GHG reduction by 2030
20% reduction in Energy Intensity


SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC IS PARTICIPATING IN THE FOLLOWING DOE PROGRAMS:

Better Climate Challenge   Better Plants Challenge   Waste Reduction Network
Low Carbon Pilot   Industrial Energy Performance Accelerator

As a Better Buildings Better Plants Challenge Partner, Schneider Electric has committed to achieving a 20% reduction in energy intensity and 95% in waste diverted from landfills at their U.S. facilities by the end of 2028 against a baseline of 2016. The company's showcase project includes pursuing Superior Energy Performance certification at a Smyrna, TN plant site that includes a recently installed 1,000-kilowatt dual voltage solar farm. This solar farm is the first dual voltage solar farm in the U.S. with the ability to operate at both 1000VDC and 600VDC, providing an opportunity for more efficient solar farm operation and giving us a real-time learning lab to research and test our renewable energy solutions.
