Schneider Electric, Green Energy Team on Microgrid Solutions
Schneider Electric has partnered with Green Energy Corp to provide standardized microgrid solutions for both public and private energy clients. The partnership combines Schneider Electric’s experience in distributed energy resources with Green Energy Corp’s open source Linux tools.
James Potach, Schneider Electric senior vice president of energy and sustainability service, explains, “A key element of our strategy is full-service implementation of microgrids. With North America projected to maintain its global leadership in microgrid capacity and increase its market share to 65 percent of the global market by 2020, now was the right time to join forces to deliver a solution that is positioned to meet this growing demand. Working with Green Energy Corp delivers a complete solution to the microgrid market, enabling Schneider Electric to provide thousands of its existing and new energy customers with options not previously available.”
Green Energy Corp provides sustainable power, water and agriculture ecosystems for localized communities. The foundation of the ecosystem is the renewable-centric microgrid. GreenBus and microgrids as a service (MaaS) products are based on open source software, cloud computing and scalability, enabling Green Energy Corp to efficiently deploy microgrids and complete ecosystems.
Green Energy Corp founder and chairman Peter Gregory adds: “Our innovative open source software connects to any and all utility and client systems. That combined with our portfolio of patents and partnership with Schneider Electric – we are now able to create smarter, scalable and repeatable microgrid solutions. With both companies having an extensive pipeline of projects, the partnership will focus on delivering a complete and standardized microgrid solution including design, development, construction, operations and ownership.”
Schneider Electric has developed and supported more than 250 advanced power control and microgrid deployments across corporate, university and government campuses in the United States.
