SatCon Technology Corporation, a developer and supplier of power management and system architecture solutions for the alternative energy and distributed power markets today announced that it has recently joined The Green Grid as a contributing member. The Green Grid is a consortium of information technology companies and professionals seeking to lower the overall consumption of power usage in data centers around the globe.

"As technology industry leaders like SatCon continue to join our organization, we can more effectively provide insight to data center managers to help them reduce power consumption," said Roger Tipley, a director of The Green Grid. "We"re pleased that companies like SatCon continue to join The Green Grid, as power management solution providers are at the forefront of the effort to help the industry meet the need for energy efficiency standards."

"We are pleased to be a Contributor Member to The Green Grid," stated Clemens van Zeyl, President of SatCon Power Systems. "Their focus on DC power distribution is a good fit for us with our history of high-power DC applications and their emphasis on energy efficiency is an excellent complement to our renewable energy product portfolio."

SatCon, through its wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, was the first company in the world to supply high-power DC power electronics using IGBT power transistor technology. DC power distribution based on power transistor technology is recognized for its high efficiency and power quality, and is also a key feature in SatCon"s alternative energy inverter products. To date, SatCon has supplied over 450 MW of high-power DC power distribution equipment utilizing IGBT technology, more than any other company in the world.

SatCon"s PowerGate® inverter brand is currently one of the leading inverter products for large commercial fuel cell and photovoltaic applications in North America. SatCon"s rigorous focus on power management and overall efficiency is a significant reason why the PowerGate® is one of the most efficient inverter products available on the market.

"Our legacy of large, highly efficient power systems has finally come around full circle," said Elbert L. McDaniel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SatCon Power Systems. "SatCon is truly one of the leaders in green power - and we are very pleased that we can be a part of The Green Grid and participate in their mission by applying our technology to one of the fastest growing energy sectors - the data center."
