- PRESS RELEASE
H.H. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Advisor and Vice Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council attended a lecture by Jean-Pascal Tricoire, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Schneider Electric.
Tricoire's lecture focused on demand management and rationalisation, their positive economic, environmental and social effects for the emirate of Abu Dhabi and Schneider Electric's approach and the tangible effects produced by the scientific solutions adopted by the emirate.
He stressed that Abu Dhabi has a big opportunity to become the first city to enhance the efficiency of urban life through continuous interaction and harmony among people, buildings, vehicles, industries and public services and utilities. This, he noted, would altogether produce a common environment to reduce per capita carbon footprint to the lowest rates globally.
He noted that the goal is sustainable development which is part of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan's vision for development, welfare and optimal performance.
Sustainability, he further noted, is a noble goal and can be used in more than one way, but the optimal way would be using more technologies and introducing changes.
Tricoire noted that his company won Zayed Future Energy Prize last year for Safe, Reliable and Efficient Energy Solutions.
He also said that Schneider Electric decided to organize a conference on energy rationalisation in collaboration with the government of Abu Dhabi to provide contributions and proposals relating to the vision and plans of the emirate in the coming years.
