Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

 CSAA new partnership between Cisco Canada and Schneider Electric will create opportunities to develop smart buildings and communities across Canada, and have a positive impact on the environment by improving energy efficiency, according to a blog announcement by Rick Huijbregts, Cisco Canada’s VP and GM of Smart + Connected Communities.

“We will be offering Canadian businesses the opportunity to share in our expertise for business development, solution creation, go-to-market strategies and customer pursuits,” says Huijbregts’ in his blog. “Ultimately, they will benefit from integrated and seamless technology solutions which will help them complete projects faster, improve energy efficiency and manage their business more effectively.”

“The world will spend more money on energy in the next 40 years than it has in the previous 400,” explains Huijbregts. “This massive increase in demand creates challenges with generation, distribution and CO2 emissions. In order to address this dilemma, we need to eliminate waste and reduce demand, while managing to improve profitability and resource productivity... Schneider Electric has developed solutions to address this growing demand, while we’ve been working hard at Cisco to develop sustainable technologies to show people that technology can work for the environment, and not against it.”

Huijbregts describes the partnership as an important step in furthering possibilities made available by Cisco’s recently announced Internet of Everything (IoE) http://electricalindustry.ca/index.php/changing-scenes/385-cisco-to-establish-100-million-ioe-innovation-centre-in-toronto. Cisco plans to invest up to $100 million over 10 years to create four innovation centres in Brazil, Canada (Toronto), Germany, and South Korea. The centres will foster innovation by helping start-ups, established companies and entire industries explore what is possible with Cisco technologies and Smart+Connected solutions.

 

The Cisco-Schneiders Electric announcement took place at the Earth Rangers’ LEED platinum Centre for Sustainable Technology in Vaughan, ON. The centre, one of the world’s most efficient buildings, is considered a leader in water, energy conservation and comfort strategies. Cisco and Schneider Electric have each been working with Earth Rangers for a number of years.
