Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, announced on August 7 the list of 12 teams to compete in the final round of Go Green in the City, its international student case study competition focusing on innovative energy solutions for smart cities.
The 12 teams are from United States of America, China, France, United Kingdom, Thailand, Brazil, Pakistan, New Zealand, India and Turkey.
Selected from a total of 76 semi-finalists, these teams include representatives from each of the eight participating global regions. The all-female winner of the "Women in Business Award" is from Özyeğin University in Turkey, and another three additional teams that particularly caught the panel's attention.
The finalists must now prepare for the last challenge of the competition: presenting their final case study to a panel of Schneider Electric executive jury. Each team will continue to be mentored by a Schneider Electric volunteer, who will offer advice and support. Their role is to help the participants develop their solutions, focusing on user needs and the project's impacts, feasibility, and return on investment.
James Nathan, Enterprise Account Manager at Schneider Electric Canada and a Go Green in the City mentor since 2013, commented: "This competition enables thousands of students worldwide to get to know Schneider Electric as a great place to work and a company that they might one day want to join. It's also an opportunity for the Group to share its ambition of innovating at every level to help rethink industries, transform cities and enrich the lives of citizens through energy management technology and automation."
