A Schneider Electric-backed initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation has reached a key goal: to identify and label 1,000 clean and profitable solutions to the global environmental crisis, and thus showcase to decision-makers in business and government that clean technologies can also be financially viable.

Led by the well-known explorer and psychiatrist Bertrand Piccard, the Solar Impulse Foundation announced its goal four years ago. Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been supporting the project since 2019, via a four-year commitment by the Schneider Electric Foundation.

“Many thanks to the Solar Impulse Foundation and congratulations to Bertrand Piccard”, said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Schneider Electric’s Chairman and CEO. “We’re inspired by your multiple scientific endeavors, and we’re very proud to work with you in developing solutions that are practical, ready to be implemented, and can solve the issues we face with climate change.”

Mr. Tricoire, alongside 14 other multinational corporations, have also signed the Solar Impulse Foundation’s manifesto, which aims to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets, fast-track large-scale implementations of solutions that tackle climate change, and implement them within businesses and government.

Schneider supported the initiative by helping to analyze potential candidates for the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label, which certifies that a product, service or process contributes to a circular economy, capable of creating jobs and reducing emissions in the areas of water, energy, construction, mobility, industry, and agriculture. Over 30 Schneider experts helped to label solutions submitted by companies around the world.

All labelled solutions join the Solar Impulse Foundation’s open-source program, available on www.solarimpulse.com.

Eight Schneider solutions were among the more than 1,000 that have received the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label are: the Harmony wireless button, a self-powered interface that connects basic industrial equipment;  its Altivar 312 Solar drives; its Altivar 600 drives; the EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor; the NEO Network; the EV Link Load Management System; the Homaya Pay As You Go Solar Home System; the and Villaya Microgrid solutions.
