Msheireb Properties, Qatar’s sustainable property developer, and Schneider Electric have signed an MoU to explore enhancing the smart city capabilities of Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD).

The POC will explore applications for traffic management, proactive and predictive maintenance of facilities for corporate tenants, predictive analysis for MEP facilities, and corrective decision-making to address issues for individual residents before complaints arise.

The partnership between Msheireb Properties and Schneider Electric marks the latest effort in the real estate developer’s ongoing commitment to enhancing and expanding its sustainable infrastructure in Qatar.

Present at the MoU signing ceremony were Eng. Ali Al Kuwari, CEO, and Eng. Faisal AlMalki, COO of Msheireb Properties, alongside Manish Pant, Schneider Electric’s Executive Vice President for International Operations, and Louie Jarouche, Schneider Electric’s Country Manager for Qatar & Kuwait.

"We are excited to partner with Schneider Electric to further enhance the smart city capabilities of Msheireb Downtown Doha. Urban environments are some of the biggest drivers of energy consumption and carbon emissions globally, a trend that is only expected to grow in the coming decades," said Al Kuwari. "This collaboration aligns with our vision to stay on the cutting edge of tech innovation and adoption of sustainable, energy-saving solutions that use data analytics and artificial intelligence to provide a hassle-free and interconnected experience for our visitors and tenants."

Louie Jarouche added, "Schneider Electric is committed to making cities and communities to be more innovative and energy-efficient. This enables both living and working spaces to be sustainable, connected and responsive to the needs of its dwellers. We are eager to work with Msheireb Properties to realise the potential of smart city technologies in enhancing wellbeing and creating resilient, and innovative urban environments of the future.”
