AutoGrid Systems, a provider of data analytics for the energy industry, and Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, have entered a partnership to bring demand response and data analytics services to utilities, service providers and consumers in North America.

The companies say that under the partnership, Schneider Electric will integrate AutoGrid's Energy Data Platform, a cloud-based data platform for managing and optimizing the electricity grid, into its Wiser home management system, a solution that connects utilities and consumers, enabling homeowners to better control energy consumption.

According to Schneider Electric, its Wiser system will allow utilities to manage peak demand, curb emissions and improve energy productivity to effectively utilize more of the electricity that is generated on the grid by enabling users to have a closer connection to their energy information.

Schneider Electric will also resell AutoGrid's Demand Response Optimization and Management System, a cloud-based demand response service, to utilities and energy service providers.

"Demand response technologies provide utilities with a wealth of new capabilities - controlling peak power is just the start. The Wiser home management system is also enabling utilities to empower homeowners by giving them easy access to their energy usage," says Yann Kulp, vice president, strategy and business development, for Schneider Electric. "By collaborating with AutoGrid, we will be able to reduce the cost and complexity of implementing these systems and introduce these capabilities to a wider spectrum of customers and end-consumers."
