Schneider Electric launches EcoStruxure Grid

EcoStruxure Grid, based on the inter-operable EcoStruxure system architecture and platform, is designed to allow distribution network operators to “tackle the increasing complexity” of grid operations and optimise asset management.

The technology allows for the design of end-to-end, open, interoperable and connected systems, enabled by Schneider Electric’s technology stack from connected products to edge control, to applications, analytics, services, and full cyber security capabilities.

It offers solutions such as connected equipment to industry-recognised control room solutions to enable utilities of any scale to benefit and improve operational performance while taking advantage of new business opportunities.

Schneider said the grid will “enhance utilities’ operations” by enabling mobility, sensing, cloud, analytics and cyber security capabilities and allowing them to manage collected, aggregated, cleaned and enriched data to create value.

Schneider’s SVP energy automation business Vincent Petit said: “Trends such as an increasingly digitised, distributed grid with more renewables, increased intermittency and IT/OT convergence, create a wealth of both challenges and opportunities for utilities.

“What’s needed is an open, interoperable IoT framework that utilities can use to build value reaching every level of the grid. That’s the way forward to a lower-carbon, smarter future for utilities and consumers alike. EcoStruxure Grid makes that happen.”
