As renewable energy and energy efficiency continue to make a profit among cost-conscious consumers, more companies are looking for ways to provide customers with better ways to manage the electricity that reaches their homes.
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Schneider Electric presented his speech to owners looking for a better energy management system with the company’s Energy Center product.
Think of it as a competitor of products from new companies such as Span, which are trying to offer homeowners better ways to integrate renewable energy generation into their homes and provide better ways to route electricity within the home, according to the executive vice president of Schneider Electric’s Home and Distribution division, Manish Pant.
“The new product is part of a wider range of Square D home energy management devices that Schneider targets homeowners. The company provides a wide range of energy management services and technologies to commercial, industrial and residential customers, but is making a more concerted effort in the US residential market. As of 2020.” according to Pant.
Schneider will seek to integrate batteries and inverters into its Energy Center team throughout the year and is currently seeking partners.
Somehow, the domestic energy market is ready for innovation. Fuse boxes have not changed in almost 100 years and there are some new companies that seek to provide better ways to integrate and manage various sources for electricity generation and storage as they become more cost competitive.
Lumin and Sense (which is backed by Schneider Energy) also have energy efficient products that they are offering to homeowners.
