What is a smart grid: Schneider Electric

The world’s traditional electrical network – simple and linear, with centralized energy production and passive consumption – is undergoing a transformation to a much more complex, interconnected, and interactive model: the Smart Grid. However, for this network to become intelligent, users will require connectivity, simplicity, and security. They will also need access to a reliable and safe energy source that guarantees optimal operation of their installations, infrastructures, and equipment.

The five mains triggers of the Smart Grid

Schneider Electric has the foresight, the offers, and the willpower necessary to be a major player within this energy revolution, as we enter a new era of intelligent energy management:

With renewable energy, consumers can produce their own energy and access a ‘greener’ energy mix

Flexible distribution enables a more responsive and stable electrical network

Active energy efficiency and energy management make energy visible and allow individuals to act on
their consumption
