Schneider Electric acquires DC Systems B.V. to advance innovations in electrical distribution

Rueil-Malmaison, France


  • DC Systems is a Netherlands based start-up, specializing in active AC/DC microgrids, DC power conversion, and a comprehensive range of DC solutions
  • This acquisition reinforces Schneider Electric’s expertise to provide resilient and sustainable energy infrastructures

The world is becoming increasingly electric. Electricity is more than ever, the energy of the 21st century: it is the most efficient energy and the best vector for decarbonization. Innovation is part of Schneider Electric’s DNA and teams are constantly assessing promising trends and technologies that can help to make energy safe, reliable, efficient, sustainable, open and connected. Direct current in electrical distribution is one such area. 

With the acquisition of DC Systems, Schneider Electric is consolidating its portfolio, to offer customers increased simplicity and resiliency for relevant applications such as building microgrids in unreliable public grid environments, or long-distance applications such as public lighting.

“Schneider Electric has always been at the forefront of innovation,” said Nadège Petit, EVP of Schneider Electric’s Power Products Business. “This new acquisition aligns closely with our Company Purpose  to empower all to make the most of their energy and resources. Furthermore, it reinforces our commitment to provide efficient and resilient solutions for microgrids in buildings, among other applications”. 

DC Systems has an established track record in developing hybrid AC/DC electrical distribution systems for microgrids, and its DNA has been built on the deployment of real-life projects. With several years of  experience in the field, DC Systems is recognized for being one of the first organizations to have made a “100% DC-electrified building”, namely the Amsterdam based “Circl building”. DC Systems has also provided DC electrical solutions for more than 300 kilometers of public road lighting, as well as for several commercial buildings across Europe. All of these projects were realized thanks to its existing ecosystems of contractors and integrators.

“In Schneider Electric we have found a like-minded partner with a shared vision, who, like us, is committed to delivering superior energy solutions, based on an open ecosystem, that offer tangible benefits for all,” said Harry Stokman, founder of DC Systems. “I look forward to tackling the energy challenge together.”
