Schneider Electric has announced its number one ranking in the inaugural Guidehouse Insights 2023 Microgrid Integrator Leaderboard, acknowledging its unique strategy and execution, demonstrated through its microgrid services, technologies and innovative scope of delivery through joint ventures.

At a time where extreme weather events increasingly impact network resilience and there is emphasised need to decarbonise, microgrids provide the flexibility to source clean, self-generated power from local distributed energy resources (DER), such as solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage.

Businesses looking to protect their operations from the risk of outages and fluctuating energy prices, turn to microgrid integrators to facilitate the installation of microgrid assets and provide the technologies to control and optimise their operation. Microgrid investments from the business and government sectors alike are necessary to meet the sustainable energy and DER needs of buildings, especially on the heels of the recent near one billion dollars fund for clean federal buildings from the Biden Administration.

Schneider Electric tops the rankings in this year’s report because of its experience developing both highly customised solutions and its EcoStruxure Microgrid Flex, offering for midsized commercial sites. Its third-party financial partnerships and joint ventures, AlphaStruxure and GreenStruxure also contributed to the high ranking. As end-to-end Energy as a Service providers across the design, finance, build, operate, own, maintain lifecycle, the parties drive innovative market differentiation.

Together, Schneider and these partners can reliably deliver customised or modular solutions, leveraging the company’s rich experience in microgrid and DER projects along with the automation technologies and tested architectures to scale solutions. In North America alone, it has successfully designed, built and currently maintains over 350 advanced microgrid control projects.

“Schneider has always put sustainability, the customer, clients and our partners first in every endeavor, and this has been shown in our leadership globally,” says Manish Kumar, Executive Vice President of Global Digital Energy Division at Schneider Electric. “It is an honor to receive recognition from Guidehouse Insights for our leadership, expertise and in delivering high quality, strategic solutions in the microgrid value chain, enabling customers to achieve new heights in decarbonising their energy operations.”

“The development of microgrid technologies has enabled the data centers of the future to play an essential role in both the generation and adoption of renewables, and to help build a more sustainable and resilient grid,” says Marc Garner SVP, Secure Power Division, Schneider Electric, Europe. “Distributed energy resources are vital to today’s decarbonisation efforts, and I’m delighted see Schneider Electric ranked first in 1 in Guidehouse Insights’ Microgrid Integrator Leaderboard report through our strategic investments and ecosystem partnerships.”
