In her keynote at IFA 2022, Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer at SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC, talks about energy savings thanks to new smart home technologies.
According to a study by the UN, households today cause 20 percent of global CO2 emissions. In her keynote at IFA 2022, Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer at SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC, will explain how smart home technologies and energy savings can help reduce CO2 emissions and be part of the solution for a climate-friendly world.
According to a study commissioned by SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC in 2021, more than half of consumers aim to reduce their CO2 consumption in-house to net zero. In times of rising energy prices, this is a desirable goal from both a sustainable and financial point of view. Energy and cost efficiency in your own four walls are therefore a top priority for many people worldwide.
For an efficient home
“By combining digitization and energy, Schneider Electric gives consumers the opportunity to make their home more efficient, sustainable, networked and individual while maintaining their comfort,” explains Gwenaelle Avice-Huet. “In the house of the future, for which we develop innovations, the focus is on intelligent energy management. In this way, we want to make sustainability accessible to all and further decarbonize our planet.”
In her keynote entitled “Smart Home is the Smart Option for a Sustainable Future”, Avice-Huet, who was named Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2018 and awarded the French Order of Merit in 2019, will talk about the effects of our daily lives, our way of thinking and our consumer behavior on global climate change. She also explains how to ensure that everyone in society can benefit from smart home energy technologies and enjoy a more sustainable home.
