Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the winners of its 2018 Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards. The Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards program is an annual competition that recognizes Schneider Electric system integrator (SI) partner companies and individuals responsible for the innovations, achievements and exceptional service that empowers industrial and infrastructure customers to turn industrial operations into profit engines for their businesses.

“Switching from technology integration to value integration is not a simple task,” said Jérôme Firmin, vice president, Strategic Marketing, Schneider Electric. “It represents a significant shift in practice and culture, both for SIs and their customers. This year’s winners exemplify the value the SI created with our offers by empowering customers to migrate away from the traditional control hierarchy to actual plant asset topology and an asset-centric architecture that controls their most critical business risks and variables, including the safety, security, efficiency, reliability, sustainability and, most crucially, the profitability of their operations in real time. Through their collaboration with Schneider Electric, these partners helped our customers ignite the industrial control profit engine of their business.”

As these awards demonstrate, SIs, industrial automation distributors, and technology and innovation partners play a key role in bringing the full benefit of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure platform to the market. Today’s digital manufacturing environment and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) present new opportunities for data collection from smart monitoring and control devices that collect, archive and analyze critical data. To assist in the process, SIs can embed algorithms into machine controls to draw on real-time production data stored in plant historians and databases. Software tools with integrated dashboards, for example, can translate data for analysis and report on the performance of individual assets and asset sets to provide a view into the health and profitability of systems that impact entire manufacturing processes.

The awards were presented at a special celebration during Schneider Electric’s annual Global ALLIANCE Partners conference in Cannes, France. Winners of the 2018 Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards include:

  • Global Control System Alliance Partner of the Year: Trend Ingeniería (Argentina) for excellent use of a control system architecture that managed both automation and power, an impressive technical solution.
  • Global EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS Alliance Partner of the Year: SuperTech Instrumentation Services (India) and Master Systèmes (France) for outstanding implementation of EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS and outstanding commercial effort to sell EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS.
  • Global Telemetry Alliance Partner of the Year Award Winner: Bit Control (Italy) for unique expertise in Telemetry offers, skills and knowledge in several WWW applications and multiple Telemetry projects during 2017.
  • Global EcoStruxure Partner of the Year Award Winner: Control Software Solutions (South Africa) for exceptional project implementation that covered all three layers of the EcoStruxure architecture, best use of AVEVA® Historian to develop dashboards and reports, and best-in-class Modicon™ and system platform project.
  • Certified Expert of the Year Award Winner: Siraparn Panukonpatsawe, Unity Focus, (Thailand) for highest grade in all EcoStruxure certification exam modules.
  • Business Development Award Winner: SAFEgroup (Australia) for largest business growth in industry scope.

“We thank the nominees, winners and all ALLIANCE partners for their continued collaboration and commitment to achieving outstanding value and results for our customers,” said Madiha Khalfi, ALLIANCE program director, System Integrator Channel, Schneider Electric. “Their focus on innovation and service continues to help our customers drive measurable real-time improvements in the safety, efficiency, reliability and profitability of their operations. Our SI alliance partners are critical to helping us deliver innovation at every level of our customer organizations, from integrating more intelligent and connected products to incorporating the newest digital services and applications.”

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
