Schneider Electric Leads the Charge for Data Center Sustainability in the Region at GITEX Global
Schneider Electric, a pioneer in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, is set to make a significant impact at GITEX Global, taking place from October 16 to 20 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The company’s key theme, ‘Sustainability in Action,’ will center around introducing cutting-edge, efficient, and resilient IT infrastructure solutions.
One of the highlights of Schneider Electric’s presence at GITEX Global is its unveiling of energy-efficient solutions designed to address data center challenges related to artificial intelligence workloads, as well as a suite of other energy-efficient technologies. These solutions are in line with Schneider Electric’s comprehensive approach: ‘Strategize, Digitize, and Decarbonize,’ which underscores the company’s commitment to decarbonization.
Mouna Essa-Egh, MEA Vice President for Secure Power at Schneider Electric, emphasized the company’s strategy for a sustainable future in the region, which combines digital transformation, energy efficiency, and AI integration. GITEX Global provides an ideal platform for showcasing these solutions to industry leaders and customers, highlighting Schneider Electric’s continuous efforts and initiatives in the region to advance innovation, digitalization, and operational efficiency.
Throughout the five-day tech conference, Schneider Electric’s team of industry and tech experts will be available to offer guidance on tailored and sustainable solutions, ensuring a solid foundation for the future of data centers, buildings, and industries.
Visitors to GITEX Global can explore the dedicated ‘Partner Experience Zone’ at Schneider Electric’s stand in Hall 5, booth 40, where integrated solutions from AVEVA, Stratus, SEMEA, Cisco, and Dell will be showcased.
During GITEX Global, Schneider Electric’s global and regional leadership will host an exclusive media roundtable discussion on October 18. The roundtable will focus on the impact of digital transformation on data centers in the Middle East and Africa and the role of Electricity 4.0 in fostering sustainable data centers.
Data centers and data transmission networks are significant contributors to energy-related greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for nearly 1% of such emissions, according to the International Energy Agency. To achieve the goal of net zero emissions by 2050, a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030 is imperative.
The roundtable will also mark the official Middle East launch of Schneider Electric’s latest SmartUPS Ultra, designed to provide enhanced power capabilities, more space, and increased equipment capacity at the edge. Schneider Electric’s regional leadership will also participate in panel discussions, delving into the evolution of AI in the region and its impact on data centers within the telecom sector.
