In 2019, I was pleased to share that 29 companies spanning 17 countries reached the highest level of competency for the Critical Power EcoXpert™ badge of the EcoXpert Partner Program. Each year, Master-level EcoXpert partners are nominated by Schneider Electric EcoXpert channel managers. Those chosen to receive this prestigious designation must have completed extensive training and certification requirements, in addition to having demonstrated excellence beyond expectation in their close collaboration with Schneider Electric’s research and development teams.
This year, I’m extremely proud to share that we had even more EcoXpert companies achieve the master-level status. A group of 34 companies have earned their spot as a master-level Critical Power EcoXpert in 2020. These companies represent the most innovative Schneider Electric partners who leverage the latest in IoT-activated technology to deliver improved power availability, safety and operational efficiency to their customers. The 2020 master-level Critical Power EcoXperts took full advantage of our technology in 2019 and used it to raise the bar in terms of power distribution solutions, which are truly digital.
Master-level Critical Power EcoXpert companies are trained and certified by Schneider Electric on EcoStruxureTM Power, an IoT-activated digital architecture and platform for power distribution and management in buildings with the highest level of competency. EcoStruxure Power improves power availability and safety by continually monitoring an entire facility network and improving protection against shock, fire and explosion. It monitors power quality and asset status and automates maintenance operations to quickly apply corrective action in case of an outage.
