Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, released a research report titled ‘Digital Economy and Climate Impact’. The report predicts that the IT sector related electricity demand is expected to increase by nearly 50% by 2030. It also added that even as the electricity system decarbonizes, the emissions would not increase by more than 26% by that time. 

The report fosters an understanding of how digitised and smart applications will be powered in the future. The company also announced updates to its EcoStruxure IT data centre software and Galaxy VL 3-phase UPS.

To help mitigate this rise in emissions, the Schneider Electric Sustainability Research Institute recommends continued efforts in achieving efficiencies on the IT and energy sides at both the component and system levels. The report highlights how the rise of edge computing requires a specific focus as these systems are expected to be less efficient than hyper-scale data centres from a PUE standpoint.

Pankaj Sharma, EVP, Secure Power, Schneider Electric said that, the analysis from the Schneider Electric Sustainability Institute nullifies many of the worst-case scenario claims predicting IT-related electricity use will double every five years. The industry must remain vigilant in finding new sources of sustainability gains while ensuring resiliency as digital keeps life moving forward.

Schneider Electric also announced updates to its EcoStruxure IT data centre infrastructure management software and Galaxy VL 3-phase uninterruptable power supply (UPS). The EcoStruxure IT software comes with increased remote management capabilities, improved environmental monitoring and enhanced remote capacity modelling and planning. The redesigned Galaxy VL enables greater space savings, faster recharge and installation and enhanced safety.
