The Chicago area is very important for Edison DC Systems as it brings us closer to rapidly expanding cloud focused data center companies
CHICAGO, Illinois (PRWEB) November 26, 2014
Edison DC Systems (EDCS), makers of advanced power systems for data centers and micro-grids, today announces the opening of a new regional office at Coalition: Energy, home to the Midwest’s leading clean technology organizations and companies.
“Coalition: Energy is a co-working hub of professionals in energy. We are focused on creating a thriving energy and cleantech community in the Midwest.” stated Coalition: Energy’s Community Manager, Amy Yanow.
“The decision to establish a presence in Coalition: Energy was driven by the benefits that co-working offers an emerging energy technology hardware company such as ourselves” said John Meinecke, CEO of Edison DC Systems. Coalition: Energy creates a single co-working space for early stage companies to have access to funding, partnerships with utilities, and organizations guiding energy standards and policies. Additionally, the work space brings energy technology professionals together to implement the best ideas for clean technology products and services.
“The Chicago region has a very high density of startups and established companies building advanced power engineering products. The role of the Smart Grid Cluster is to work directly to support small businesses, like EDCS, with connections, business and technical mentoring, and access to capital,” according to Jeremy Adelman from Smart Grid Cluster.
Meinecke added that “the Chicago area is very important for Edison DC Systems as it brings us closer to engineering teams at key component suppliers and the rapidly expanding cloud infrastructure opportunities developing in Northern Illinois.”
EDCS is developing a power conversion system for use by data centers that takes AC (alternating current) and converts it to DC (direct current) to offer a more efficient power distribution architecture. There will be substantial savings for cloud scale energy users. The system creates a unique, clean, uninterruptable power supply.
