Hungarian Named VP of Digital Energy at Schneider Electric
Dániel Racsek was appointed vice president responsible for digital energy in the Southeast European region of Schneider Electric, holding his new position as of June 1. The 36-year-old professional is the youngest person to receive such an appointment in the region, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
"The digitization of the energy sector is crucial for our future. With the new technologies, we can use the produced energy significantly more efficiently and integrate our renewable energy sources into our systems. Thanks to this, we can reduce the effects of natural disasters or geopolitical events on the energy supply. I am convinced that the best energy is what we don't use, but in order to make our energy use more efficient, we need accurate data. [...] This appointment is a great honor for me, although it represents a serious challenge, but I believe that the market is increasingly in demand for the opportunities that our product portfolio offers,” shares Racsek about his new position.
Racsek joined the Schneider Electric team shortly after obtaining his degree in economics and has been working for the leading multinational company in the field of energy management and industrial automation solutions for more than 10 years. In his new position, the specialist is responsible for the introduction of the company's digital solutions supporting energy management in the region.
Prior to his current position, Racsek worked as the business development director of the company's EcoStruxure branch, pioneering solutions such as automated energy advisory services based on self-learning intelligence.
Due to challenges within the energy market, the integration of renewable energy produced in ever-increasing quantities and the need to increase energy efficiency, the digital energy area has become of strategic importance for Schneider Electric.
In the future, Racsek will be responsible for introducing digital solutions to market participants in the region, implementing the company's best practices, and drawing attention to the opportunities available to increase energy efficiency.
In his new position, the Hungarian specialist will manage a six-person international team and report directly to Petr Hermann, the director responsible for South-Eastern Europe of Schneider Electric.
"[...] It is a constant challenge to integrate renewable energy and feed it into existing networks. All these circumstances together catalyzed the strengthening of the Southeast European digital energy team, and we have high hopes for the future involvement of this area," says Hermann.
