Welcome from one of our sponsors: Schneider Electric

The Water Wastewater Competency Center (WWCC) of Schneider Electric has put its support behind the 2012 ISA Water/Wastewater Symposium as a Platinum sponsor.

Since 2005, Schneider Electric has provided a team of professionals, which now numbers over 100, focused solely on water & wastewater (W/WW).  Through the WWCC, Schneider Electric has evolved from being just an equipment vendor to becoming a trusted advisor and solution provider for the W/WW industry.  We promote continuing education through our own W/WW workshops as well as supporting national, regional and state-wide events for water professionals and those who support them.  We are pleased to be part of what the ISA WWID is doing in the way of continuing education, and encourage you to join us in Orlando for this year’s symposium.

Our move from a product-focused company required a number of acquisitions, so you may not really know who Schneider Electric is today. We are comprised of over 120 names you know like Square D, Modicon, American Power Conversion (APC), Control Microsystems, Pelco cameras and Citect SCADA as well as others that may not be as familiar to you, like Tour Andover Controls (t.a.c.), Telvent and 7-Technologies.  These diverse companies further our abilities to address issues impacting the W/WW industry such as water scarcity, uncertain energy costs, aging infrastructure, increased security needs and CapEx funding challenges.

Schneider Electric is a global energy management specialist, with solutions for power distribution & control, power quality monitoring & mitigation, instrumentation & control,SCADA, MES and advanced software tools, security & access control, critical & secure power, energy procurement strategies, design-build partnerships, integrated weather solutions and alternative project funding mechanisms.  Our 22,000 US-based employees are part of a $31B company with over 130,000 associates worldwide.

Schneider Electric’s vision is of a world where we can all achieve more while using less of our common planet. Our mission is to help people make the most of their energy.
