Schneider Electric to Release EcoXpert Program in Saudi Arabia

19.08.2015
Riyadh-Saudi Arabia: 13 August, 2015 - Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, is set to launch its EcoXpert program in Saudi Arabia aiming to develop a network of certified experts to deliver a professional analysis of a building’s energy challenges, and offer tested, validated, and documented energy management solutions that meet the needs and investment capabilities of end-users.

The launch ceremony, scheduled for 24th of August at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh, will be attended by senior executives from Schneider Electric as well as the executives of the Systems’ Integrators.

Offering specialized training and competencies in EcoBuilding solutions, the EcoXpert program will certify selected partners who make the cut with a specific EcoXpert specialty/badge. Schneider Electric’s partners will be granted one or multiple EcoXpert badges based on their field of specialty such as EcoXpert Critical Power, EcoXpert Connected Power, EcoXpert Light & Room, Control, EcoXpert DataCom, and EcoXpert Building Management Solutions (BMS). As part of their mandate, certified experts will promote and deliver innovative systems and solutions supported by Schneider Electric.

Ahead of the launch, Sabry Almazraawy, Vice President, EcoBuilding at Schneider Electric in Saudi Arabia, said: “Schneider Electric’s strategy in Saudi Arabia focuses on developing partnerships and expertise locally in line with our sustainable development goals for the country. This is even more significant now that the country is in the midst of implementing mega expansion plans across various sectors. Schneider Electric firmly believes that stepping-up the development of human capital will help advance our sustainability agenda, and eventually translate into benefits for the end user in terms of reduced utility bills and energy emissions.”

He added: “At Schneider Electric, we have a strong program for audit, evaluation and support that are held periodically to align the level of our EcoExperts to our standards. Schneider Electric is expanding both its knowledge base and offering to accommodate the enormous need for energy management across both the supply and demand sides of the power market. Our EcoXpert program is helping to meet the human talent side of this equation by equipping our partners and system integrators with the competency, skill sets and solutions they need to take advantage of this market opportunity.”
