– The two companies announced a partnership in November 2018 to help homeowners make their homes greener, more efficient and wiser
– This partnership won for their leadership and contributions to the region’s leading clean energy economy
Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation and Sense, the innovator in home energy monitoring, won the Partnership of the Year award at the Northeast Clean Energy Council’s 12th Annual Green Tie Gala Awards based on their work together to accelerate the evolution of the smart home to become an energy-smart home.
Sense and Schneider Electric entered into a partnership in late 2018. Early in 2019, Schneider released its first product based on the partnership, the Wiser Energy Monitor running the Square D edition of the Sense App for electrical distributors and builders. Through this new product, consumers can achieve significant energy savings of up to 20% simply by tracking down “energy hogs” in their homes.
Energy monitoring by itself provides many of these gains, but Sense and Schneider are working with a number of other smart home devices to make energy intelligence a core part of the smart home, including for control and automation. Integrations include IFTT, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Philips Hue lighting, and selected Wemo and TP-Link smart plugs.
“The key to a successful partnership is a common vision and clarity around what each partner can bring to the relationship. In this case, the common vision is that energy systems should become smarter,” said Michael Phillips, CEO of Sense. “Consumers want visibility and control of energy in their homes, and we are working with Schneider Electric to make this a default for future homes.”
“With climate change one of the most urgent issues of our times, we must recognize that energy use worldwide is a huge industry with significant economic, geopolitical, and environmental problems,” said Michael Mahan of Schneider Electric. “Buildings represent approximately 40% of the global energy footprint and half or more of this energy is wasted through a variety of inefficiencies. The key to addressing this challenge is to embed intelligence directly into a building’s energy systems, making it possible to automate improvements, and interacting with consumers to identify and act on energy wasting devices and behaviors.”
