Senthil Kumar V, vice president, Industrial Automation, Schneider Electric India, emphasized the critical necessity of digitization and sustainability in water management. He said, “Sustainability is the driving purpose behind all of our endeavors. The Green Yodha initiative enables us in our efforts to raise awareness and encourage the use of sustainable alternatives. It is an honor for us to support the Ministry of Jal Shakti’s mission of achieving sustainable water management. The sector will benefit greatly from Schneider Electric’s vast IoT-enabled software, tools, and solutions, which will help accelerate the adoption of technology and digitization. Modernized water infrastructure will reduce high operational and energy costs while reducing water loss.”
Sanjay Sudhakaran, vice president, Power Systems, Schneider Electric India, stated, “As power and grid infrastructure evolves to usher in a New World of Energy, energy demands are also rising exponentially. Leveraging the Green Yodha initiative, we are determined to support the Ministry of Power’s ambitions and reforms of overcoming the distribution grid’s current concerns, such as power supply, reliability, and congestion. Additionally, support the DISCOMs in improving their operational efficiency and financial viability through the approved Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme (RDSS). Hence, installing smart connected field equipment and integrating it with digitization throughout the energy ecosystem becomes even more essential.”
