Citect in environmental business cluster

02 January 2007

Schneider Electric division, Citect, is pushing an environmental initiative with a Statement of Intent for a development project in Southeast Queensland.

The joint statement, with Delfin Land Lease, was signed at an event in London that was attended by Peter Beattie, Queensland Premier and Minister for Trade.

The project is being developed by Delfin, Australian developer of master planned communities, and will be the location for the world’s first Environmental Business Cluster. Acting gas a hub for environmental businesses in Australia, it is hoped the cluster will encourage world-class research and development. Over a 30-year period the Yarrabilba 2014 hectare project will home around 52,000 people in an estimated 23,000 homes.

As a strategic Alliance Partner, Schneider Electric’s scope includes Citect providing an in-home monitoring system for the homes, over the life of the project. By monitoring energy and water usage in real time, it is hoped the technology will assist residents in reduction of household consumption.

“We are excited to have such major national and international players as the founding strategic alliance partners for the Environmental Business Cluster,” said Andrew Brimblecombe, regional general manager of Land Lease Communities Queensland.

“Having companies such as Citect and Schneider Electric will ensure the Cluster is a precinct for world-leading research, manufacturing and services.”
