At the same time, installation of solar-charged eco-friendly LED lighting will support the operation of an eco-friendly campus.
Eric Leger, president of Schneider Electric Korea said, “Schneider Electric Korea recognizes energy is an issue not limited to industry but is a national concern and is making various efforts to raise the awareness of the general public.” He added, “Supporting students who will become future professionals is crucial. We hope to contribute to laying a more solid foundation for local energy businesses through cooperation with Korea University.”
Schneider Electric Korea has become a major participating company in Korea University’s Next Generation Energy Professionals Training Project (Advanced Track on Flexible Grid Technology) and will be launching various activities including scholarship and internship programs, working-level lectures, and free online university lectures on energy.
Based on their cooperative relationship, Schneider Electric Korea and Korea University will share information on energy saving and implementation, as well as running joint activities for publicizing energy saving and for training energy professionals.
