Schneider Electric Unveils New Research and Innovations to Prepare IT Infrastructure for Net Zero Operations 08/06/2022

Schneider Electric-commissioned research exposes sustainability action gap in the data centre and IT industries

Newly launched innovations support the next wave of sustainability and resiliency in data centres and distributed edge IT, including:

New mySchneider IT Partner Program

The Easy Modular Data Center All-in-One Solution; and

Expansion of EcoStruxure IT DCIM software

Schneider Electric , the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today released three independent research studies to better understand the maturity of sustainability initiatives within IT and data centre organisations, and more specifically, where the IT and data centre industry stand in achieving this vision of net-zero IT operations. The results of the studies, conducted by leading industry analysts, were previewed at a broadcast titled The Future is Now: Preparing IT Infrastructure for Net Zero Operations, and revealed a sustainability action gap.

451 Research, Forrester and Canalys independently collected data from more than 3,000 global participants, include the largest colocation and cloud providers, IT solution providers and IT professionals across many segments and organisation sizes. Overall, findings consistently demonstrate that across the data centre and IT industry, there is discrepancy between where companies think they are and implementing full lifecycle sustainability programs across their IT infrastructure. According to the 451 Research findings, in surveying 1,100 IT professionals responsible for core and distributed IT, whereas 26% of participants self-identified as having a full lifecycle sustainability program covering all the infrastructure, only 14% are taking the actions to have implemented the programs. The analysis further identifies 22% as not addressing sustainability as a major focus, though may have efficiency initiatives to improve specific areas of operations.

Today at 3:00 pm CET/ 9:00 am ET, the company is holding a LinkedIn Live event where company executives will discuss Electricity 4.0 - a convergence of digital and electric, leading to our sustainable future, the data centre and IT industry's responsibility to address the climate crisis. The panelists will also share insights from the research and the newly announced innovations.

Data centres play a critical role in driving Electricity 4.0 which we believe is the key to changing the trajectory of climate change. As an industry, we have a responsibility to drive forward our environmental commitments with extreme urgency. We've made some progress but to avoid a major energy challenge, all data centres - including distributed edge data centres -- must be more sustainable, efficient, adaptive, and resilient, says Pankaj Sharma, Executive Vice President, Secure Power Division at Schneider Electric. The research is clear - the industry knows sustainability needs to be prioritised but challenges still exist to taking action and will take a collaborative effort to overcome. The good news is the technology to take action in sustainability exists today. Now is the time to act.

In addition to releasing these research studies, Schneider Electric made several new announcements live from its global headquarters in Paris, all of which are designed to help data centre and IT professionals make progress towards their sustainability goals
