Smart green energy may help solve the escalating power crisis

Despite the progress made in green energy today, many organizations still rely heavily on traditional power sources because this is what they have been doing for years. But as the energy crisis spreads, affecting the UK, China and other parts of the world, the domino effect it brings is causing problems that no one is really prepared to deal with.
In the United Kingdom, due to rising costs and energy shortages, rising gasoline prices have caused many food manufacturers and supply companies to face shortages. According to CNN, unless the British government provides some relief, the affected British companies may be forced to close factories or pass on rising costs to consumers.
As major users of natural gas and electricity, most of these companies are affected by the sharp increase in wholesale energy prices, which may continue until the end of 2021. Compared with the help of international competitors, the crisis has also reduced the competitiveness of British companies from their government.
It’s not just the UK that is facing an energy crisis. In China, despite the government’s efforts to increase coal supply and manage electricity use, there are reports that the electricity deficit is still worsening. This crisis clearly highlights the global problem of energy shortages.
For Schneider Electric CEO and Chairman Jean-Pascal Tricoire, the company needs to increase its energy structure in terms of supply, which is not a restriction on resources and renewable energy. He added: “When climate disturbances or problems lead to regular grid supply, companies can consider mixing energy sources to increase resilience.”
To meet this demand, Schneider Electric has also introduced digital innovations in carbon emission reduction, not only for power grids and industries, but also for homes, buildings and data centers. Called Power 4.0, for the new power world, integration can be the best carrier for green energy and decarbonization.
For data centers, the new APC Smart-UPS Ultra 5kW is the industry’s first 5kW uninterruptible power supply (UPS) — designed to provide higher power, flexibility and intelligent monitoring in a minimal footprint, and release valuable resources for edge applications IT space. Schneider’s data center customers have reduced their carbon footprint by 37%.
In the field of smart home, Schneider announced a series of smart sustainable home solutions, including Wiser to help combat energy waste. By 2050, households are expected to be the largest single consumers of electricity and the largest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, of which up to 34% are generated by households.
In order to create a resilient digital grid, Schneider’s pure-air SF6-free technology range for net-zero grids has been expanded through RM AirSeT ring mains and modular switchgear, as well as MCSeT active medium-voltage air-insulated distribution boards. Although smart power distribution rethinks Schneider’s low-voltage digital products will provide installers and service partners with a simpler, more sustainable, safe and reliable user experience to enhance the flexibility of the world’s growing digital economy.
With new solutions that advocate green energy, companies should seek more alternatives in the future to ensure that interference with their production is minimized. If it is possible to work remotely during the COVID-19 peak period, then in the long run, the use of alternative green energy roadmaps should also be achievable.
