Schneider Electric has appointed Ruben Llanes chief executive officer of digital grid, a business unit aimed at accelerating grid modernisation.

Previously CEO of AutoGrid, Llanes introduced improved processes and methods, and launched new solutions, including turnkey VPPs. His tenure culminated with the sale of AutoGrid to Uplight in the first quarter of 2024.

“Ruben brings the right combination of leadership and expertise to deliver a more comprehensive solution to utilities and end-customers on both sides of the meter, with greater velocity and integration, for a more balanced and resilient grid,” said Luis D’Acosta, CEO of Uplight and former executive vice president of Schneider Electric’s Digital Energy global business.

“I'm looking forward to continuing this important work with this immensely talented team while we evolve our business, grow our ecosystem, and deliver innovative solutions that serve the entire energy value chain,” stated Llanes.

Llanes has held previous roles at Schneider Electric, including vice president, national sales force, and vice president, channel business development & strategy.
