Schneider Electric Launches Green Building Solutions


RUEIL-MALMAISON, France — Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has created a new team dedicated to the green buildings segment. Appointed to lead the newly formed segment is Melissa O’Mara, vice president, Green Buildings Solutions, within the global Buildings Business.

The new organization is geared to help customers optimize their power consumption and energy performance to meet sustainability targets and/or achieve regulatory commitments to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, according to the company.

O’Mara will be responsible for bringing Schneider Electric’s full portfolio of energy and security solutions together to address environmental and economic challenges in global markets.

O’Mara has previously worked for Andersen Consulting and IBM, where she most recently drove its Green Sigma Coalition, a partnership between nine companies, including Schneider Electric. The coalition was formed in an effort to accelerate enterprise sustainability through projects aimed to significantly reduce energy consumption, water use, waste and GHG emissions.

Schneider Electric’s comprehensive EcoStruxure energy management architecture connects five domains of business expertise – power, data centers, process and machines, building control, and security – within an open and flexible technology architecture that delivers up to 30 percent savings in energy efficiency, the company says.

“Integrating technology is just the first step in addressing aggressive GHG and sustainability targets, and Schneider Electric is committed to assisting companies around the world achieve greater efficiency to mitigate climate change,” says O’Mara. “Part of that challenge is to address people and process innovation as well as technology innovation, and I am excited to tackle these global challenges in this new role at Schneider Electric.”
