Alexis Grenon: It's great to be back here after a couple of years and have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our customers, our partners. That's a unique opportunity after two years.
We've put together a wonderful booth with our latest technology. Now, Schneider Electric is developing the technology to address a couple of megatrends impacting the industry, such as electrification, digitization, and sustainability.
We've developed our offers to enable utilities to address those challenges. That's a good opportunity after two years to show the latest and the greatest of what we've developed during these two years, as we continued to invest in exciting new offers.
