Schneider, Awesense Reduce Electricity Losses

November 5, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Schneider Energy ManageSchneider Electric and Awesense have signed an agreement to commercialize complementary offers to reduce network losses in electricity distribution grids.

Awesense develops products and software to identify losses from metering errors to electricity theft. For instance, Awesense has found that marijuana growers are heavy energy consumers because they use special energy-hogging lights to make their crops grow faster indoors.

The agreement between the two companies will enable Schneider Electric to integrate and sell Awesense’s True Grid Intelligence (TGI) cloud software and line sensors, as well as associated engineering and technical services. The solution identifies losses on all grid topologies with overhead or underground conductors. Awesense will benefit from Schneider Electric’s commercial footprint.
