Revolutionizing Energy Efficiency: Le Grand Monarque’s Energy Saving Journey with Schneider Electric

A new chapter in energy management unfolded in Le Grand Monarque, a renowned hotel situated in a 600-year-old building in Chartres, France. The hotel faced a major energy crisis post COVID-19, seeing their electricity bills skyrocket from $80 to $650-$750 every month. In desperate need of a solution, Le Grand Monarque turned to B2Ei, a trusted Schneider Electric partner. Leveraging their expertise as an EcoXpert (Global Schneider Electric partner network providing local expertise), B2Ei recommended the EcoStruxure Energy Hub solution.

The implementation was truly transformational, offering not only a simple but also a quick installation process. Moreover, the system achieved precision in measuring and monitoring power consumption through the utilization of PowerLogic PowerTag energy sensors and EcoStruxure Panel Server gateways. The dashboard of the EcoStruxure Energy Hub offered real-time insights. It uncovered that guest rooms and food service areas were the primary contributors to a large portion of energy usage.

Results of System Implementation

The results of the system were immediate and impactful. Within the initial six months, the hotel experienced a notable 15% reduction in energy usage. Moving forward, the hotel planned structural improvements aligned with energy consumption regulations, targeting a 40% reduction in energy consumption by 2030.


This successful collaboration among Le Grand Monarque, B2Ei, and Schneider Electric not only effectively resolved a significant energy crisis but also laid the foundation for achieving a more sustainable and energy-efficient future. This partnership illustrates how innovative solutions can not only overcome challenges but also foster awareness of energy consumption. Moreover, it contributes to shaping a more environmentally friendly landscape within the hospitality industry.

How can Singapore Empower a Sustainable Future with Lessons from Energy Consumption Success Story?

Singapore can propel itself towards a sustainable future by drawing inspiration from the success story of Le Grand Monarque’s energy consumption initiative.
