19.7.2007: Meldung: Active Power Earns Endorsement from The Carbon Trust

As energy prices continue to rapidly increase and momentum builds for tougher environmental legislation, organizations are challenged to improve energy efficiency and minimize overhead power consumption. To help address this need, Active Power announces The Carbon Trust has listed CleanSource(R) UPS (uninterruptible power supply) on its Energy Technology Product List (ETPL), part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme. Active Power has also earned the privilege of now using the Energy Technology List (ETL) symbol.

The ECA scheme is managed by The Carbon Trust, a private entity backed by the United Kingdom government to address the threat of climate change and accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy. The scheme provides United Kingdom based businesses first year tax relief on their qualifying capital expenditure. Active Power"s CleanSource UPS is now included on that list.

"The recognition from The Carbon Trust is another proof point that CleanSource is a highly reliable, energy efficient and green solution," said Jim Clishem, president and CEO of Active Power. "This listing and the use of the ETL symbol positions us well to continue to compete and win major projects in the United Kingdom. We enable our customers to make more money, save money and help them establish goodwill with their customers by investing in an energy efficient solution. Our partnership with The Carbon Trust allows us to increase the economic value of our proposition to clients."

CleanSource is an energy-efficient, highly reliable and battery-free UPS system that uses integrated, field proven flywheel technology to protect mission critical operations from voltage sags, surges and power interruptions. Since 1996, CleanSource has saved customers more than US$40 million in energy costs. This cost savings is due to the UPS system"s high efficiency levels. With more than 27 million hours of runtime in the field, CleanSource performs at efficiency levels of up to 98 percent, which reduces overall energy consumption. The UPS system is a highly reliable source of energy, delivering consistent, predictable performance over its 20-year life span with absolutely no degradation in service.
