The global energy dilemma

Schneider Electric 2

The energy and CO 2 emission challenge

World consumption up

45% since 1980, 70%

higher by 2030

Emerging markets

> 75% of new demand

CO2 up 33% since

industrial revolution,

rising faster than ever

Resource competition &

political instability keep

prices high

●Coal use continues to grow in emerging markets

These trends are here to last unless we act!

emission factors,

input parameters,

and the sources consuming the energy.

● What is your aggregate CO2e Output

vs. Target

vs. Baseline Year?

Kyoto Protocol

● Part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

● Adopted for use in December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan

● The objective is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations using 1990 as the base

year for reduction objectives

● As of 2008 183 countries have ratified the protocol:

Power Quality Module

� Steady state analysis of RMS voltages, current, power, frequency, imbalance,

harmonic distortion, sag/swells, transients, phasors, and symmetrical components

� Compliance summaries (ie. SARFI, EN50160, IEEE1159) with trending

� Plots events against industry-standard or custom tolerance curves (ITI, CBEMA, SEMI-

F47), with mapping of events indicating type, classification, age, severity, etc

� Use tools to help reduce data and correlate multiple events with a root cause

� Summarize events within a time range or other dimension to produce a single representative

event, … then drill down on a selected summary event to reveal the list of supporting events.

� Visually delineate events using symbols and colors for phase, type, age or other dimension

� Classify events by attributes, add a custom annotations and then filter on that classification

� Waveform analysis with zooming, event details, stacking, and RMS overlays
