PowerSecure International, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWR) announced it has established a partnership with Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, to bring its Interactive Distributed Generation® smart grid power systems to hospitals. 

Under the terms of this new partnership, Schneider Electric will offer hospitals across North America PowerSecure’s Interactive Distributed Generation (IDG®) power systems. PowerSecure’s proven, industry-leading IDG technology, in partnership with local utilities, enables hospitals to:

1) make their operations more efficient by utilizing their idle backup power systems during high-cost peak electricity demand, 

2) extend and upgrade their backup power systems due to the energy savings IDG systems can deliver, and 

3) benefit from PowerSecure’s proprietary monitoring and control systems, which are electronically connected to PowerSecure’s Smart Grid Monitoring Center, ensuring that the delivery of more efficient power is optimized, and that backup power is ready to support hospital facilities around-the-clock. 

“We are in an excellent position to help our healthcare customers understand and use their energy as an asset, not as a liability,” said James Anderson, Vice President, Smart Grid Programs, Schneider Electric. “This partnership with PowerSecure allows us to implement a demand management strategy with our healthcare customers and further enhances our ability to help hospitals and other healthcare facilities understand the opportunities and risks inherent in the smart grid.” 

Sidney Hinton, CEO of PowerSecure, said, "We are excited about this new partnership with Schneider Electric. Their reputation in the marketplace is impeccable, and they have built strong, trusting relationships with thousands of healthcare companies. Their breadth and expertise in this category is second to none. We are looking forward to working with Schneider Electric to make our IDG smart grid power systems available to an expanded number of hospital customers through this partnership.”
