New solutions bring enhanced safety and control while delivering sustainable energy management choices directly to homeowners.
Boston, January 11, 2021 – Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has announced at CES 2021 the expansion of their Wiser smart home ecosystem, furthering discussion around the Smart and Sustainable Home. The Wiser range marks a significant step forward to create affordable, sustainable, energy efficient, resilient and personalised homes.
Anchored by the Square D™ Energy Center, these industry-first products enable unprecedented residential insights and monitoring capabilities for homeowners to control and lower their home's energy consumption and electrical heating and cooling costs by up to 50%.
"Our homes are expected to become the single largest greenhouse gas emitters over the next decade," said Manish Pant, Executive Vice President, Home and Distribution Division at Schneider Electric. "As consumers equip their homes with more connected devices, the ability to control and manage home energy consumption will be non-negotiable. A secure, interoperable power management system is key to ensuring consumers live sustainably even at home, by keeping energy cost and CO2 emissions to a minimum. Our new product empowers consumers to make better energy choices, and to take active control over their energy needs."
The Square D™ Energy Center, as part of the Wiser ecosystem of solutions, can now help combat the likelihood of homes becoming the single largest greenhouse gas emitters over the next decade, by transforming homes from simply smart to smart and sustainable. It's a major step towards enabling net zero, self-sufficient homes, and bringing sustainable energy choices directly to consumers. By connecting a smart thermostat, a smart meter, a back-up generator and a solar inverter with an AI-driven energy management system, the Square D™ Energy Center takes a proactive energy management approach, addressing key pain points of resilience and effective energy management in the home.
