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.

Schneider Electric received a 2022 Better Practice Award for adopting a new method to standardize compressed air leak detection using acoustical imaging technology, resulting in the identification of over 250 leaks, representing over $600,000 in cost savings and 317 metric tons of CO2 reduction.
