Palatine, Ill. October 26, 2012 — Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, and IPKeys Technologies, will partner to deliver a fully automated demand response (AutoDR) and energy management information system solution for utilities’ and commercial and industrial (C&I) customers.
Through this solution Schneider Electric and IPKeys Technologies enable the collaborative utility-customer relationship necessary to make smart grid a reality.
By integrating IPKeys’ OpenADR 2.0 certified Energy Interop Server & System technologies with Schneider Electric’s Energy Profiler Online, Schneider Electric and IPKeys can provide utilities with a complete, scalable, and secure end-to-end AutoDR and EMIS solution for their C&I customer base.
In addition, IPKeys’ EISS technology integrates with Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare software at the control level providing commercial and industrial customers of electric utilities with a robust, flexible and cost effective method of connecting to the smart grid and maximizing the demand response potential of their facilities.
Schneider Electric’s EPO provides C&I customers of electric utilities the ability to view energy cost, usage, and emissions data as well as the opportunity to participate in utility curtailment programs. EPO also provides utilities with a demand response curtailment platform allowing them to model, manage, call, and notify customers of demand response events, while tracking event performance.
Through this partnership, Schneider Electric and IPKeys illustrate their continued commitment to interoperability and open standards while enabling utilities’ C&I customers to automatically connect to the smart grid and enabling them to more easily take advantage of demand response programs.
