Schneider Electric has formed a new team focused on meeting the energy infrastructure needs of U.S. federal government clients and named Jay Owen, a nearly three-decade company veteran, to lead the newly created team.
Schneider Electric Federal will provide energy management and industrial automation offerings to government customers and design, maintain and operate energy and sustainability platforms to support clients’ electrification requirements, the company said Tuesday.
The newly established team will deliver tools that could help customers identify cyber risks, waste, leaks and inefficiencies using data, help clients accelerate digital transformation of infrastructure using its suite of software and work with its network of partners to support federal clients with a set of platforms meant to help them manage their energy needs.
“At Schneider Electric Federal, we recognize that the integrity of the federal infrastructure and uninterrupted access to sustainable energy sources are critical to national security,” said Owen, who will serve as senior vice president of federal at Schneider Electric.
He added that the company has played a role in developing U.S. energy infrastructure for over 180 years and that he is eager for the newly created team to continue shaping the country’s energy future.
Schneider Electric has supported several federal and military initiatives, including the construction of an energy security microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California and data center optimization efforts at two installations of the U.S. Navy.
