Schneider Electric has revealed the deployment of its EcoStruxure Facility Advisor solution, which helps monitor the use of energy and asset availability and improve efficiency, at the 19 Carrefour stores in Egypt, operated by Majid Al Futtaim, a pioneer of shopping centers, communities, shops and leisure leader in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
“In a retail environment as competitive as it is today, Carrefour is constantly looking for ways to improve quality, supply and prices, as well as implementing sustainable business practices. The company has implemented Advisor services in 19 hypermarkets and supermarkets in Egypt and is planning to introduce it in all its stores.” the company commented.
arrefour began collaborating with Schneider Electric in 2016 to find solutions that reduce energy consumption. Among its objectives were to be able to measure energy consumption in all stores to identify those with high and low performance, as well as use energy dashboards and performance reports to continuously optimize the use of energy.
The company also wanted to ensure maximum protection against elements that pose a risk of inactivit, such as equipment failures or power outages, and thus maximize the operating time of energy, lighting, refrigerators and other assets critical to the operation.
Schneider Electric’s EcoStrucure Advisor solution is a cloud-based platform that provides information on consumption and alerts on the quality of electrical distribution. It helps eliminate energy losses by detecting their abnormal consumption in the connected assets and allowing actions to minimize unexpected failures.
