Schneider and PowerSecure bringing smart grid solutions to hospitals
By Anthony Capkun
PowerSecure International Inc. has partnered with Schneider Electric to bring its Interactive Distributed Generation smart grid power systems to hospitals. In partnership with local utilities, PowerSecure’s IDG technology enables hospitals to: employ their idle backup power systems during high-cost peak electricity demand; extend and upgrade their backup power systems due to the energy savings; and benefit from monitoring and control systems, which are connected to PowerSecure’s smart grid monitoring centre.
