How digitalization can solve the carbon crisis
Lidl is setting higher standards. In Finland, the company runs on 100 percent renewable energy through a new distribution centre that draws on IoT-enabled microgrid and building solutions from Schneider Electric. The centre is the largest totally renewable industrial microgrid in Finland. It includes an advanced building automation system, and covers an area equivalent in size to 10 football pitches. The centre benefits from Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor, a software-as-a-service cloud-based solution with powerful analytics which teaches the building to predict events and optimize energy use, which has resulted in energy cost savings of over 70 percent.
