Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, is transforming its Digital Buildings business in Canada with the launch of the SMART Buildings Division. This evolution marks a strategic move to deliver comprehensive solutions and services that support building owners and operators in achieving their decarbonization and sustainability goals.

The demand for smart buildings is surging, driven by a global shift toward sustainability, digitization, and energy efficiency. Canada’s real estate industry is actively transforming as the nation commits to net-zero emissions by 2050. With buildings consuming approximately 30 per cent of the world’s energy and accounting for almost 40 per cent of annual CO2 emissions, urgent action is needed to intensify efforts toward sustainable building practices.

“Through our SMART Buildings division in Canada, we’re set to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and occupant comfort,” says Emily Heitman, president of Schneider Electric Canada. “Our goal is to empower building owners and operators to create smarter, more efficient spaces for a sustainable future.”

The SMART Buildings division will provide:

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Optimizing energy consumption intelligently to achieve significant cost savings and reduce environmental impact.
  • Seamless Automation: Creating harmonious environments where lighting, HVAC, security systems, and more work together to optimize comfort and efficiency.
  • Proactive Maintenance: Leveraging predictive analytics and remote monitoring to ensure proactive maintenance, minimize downtime, and extend the lifespan of building systems.
  • Occupant Well-being: Prioritizing occupant comfort with personalized settings, indoor air quality monitoring, and intuitive interfaces that enhance overall experience.
  • Data-Driven Insights: Providing valuable data analytics for informed decision-making and continuous improvement of building performance.
