Schneider Electric launches EcoXpert program in NZ

Schneider Electric has launched its smart building and smart home product and skills certification program, EcoXpert, in New Zealand.

The EcoXpert Partner Program is a worldwide network of trained and certified partners who build expertise in building optimisation, power management and energy efficiency. According to the company, there are nearly 3000 EcoXpert partner companies across more than 40 countries.

“The demand for high-performing homes and buildings is growing exponentially as running costs and environmental standards continue to heighten,” said Ray Dunn, New Zealand Executive General Manager of Schneider Electric. “Globally the EcoXpert network has grown by 45% in the past four years and areas of specialisation have emerged in hotels, health care, data centres and retail. We know there is a strong demand in New Zealand to access the program that is suitable for local conditions and projects.”

Local firm Quasar’s Managing Director, Richard Schwass, said: “Being a ‘Master’ level partner in this program gives us access to a large range of resources and support from Schneider Electric. It also provides our customers with an assurance of quality solutions being built by a certified company whose individual staff members are trained and accredited by Schneider Electric on the systems, solutions and technology.”

Speaking at the launch of the New Zealand chapter of the program in Queenstown, Schneider Electric Zone President Gareth O’Reilly said: “At a time when the world is becoming more connected, digitised and energy reliant, it is more important than ever that we partner with small, medium and large businesses in sharing information on technology, software, products and customer needs.”
