The energy environment is changing . . .


A Schneider Electric microgrid can help you manage it safely and effectively
In todays high-tech world, our everyday activities depend on an uninterrupted flow of cost
effective electricity. Severe storms, power outages, aging energy infrastructure, and rising
costs have created a period of energy uncertainty where large energy users are quickly
realizing the importance of distributed generation resources and efficient renewable energy.

$119 Billion

Thankfully, the introduction of microgrids is shifting management of our electricity system


to the end user, enabling more decentralized control. These solutions are providing large
electricity consumers with advanced energy flexibility, where power is more reliable and
storm-resilient, and becomes an asset driving performance.
