GE's Power Electronics business, formerly known as Lineage Power, and Verizon partnered on a project sponsored by the United States Department of Energy to design and field trial new technologies aimed at dramatically improving the energy efficiency of power systems supporting information communication technology systems. A variety of energy efficiency upgrade strategies were pursued at five different telecommunications facilities. Baseline energy input, output and efficiency were measured for six months. Upgrades were performed and the energy variables were once again measured using the same monitoring equipment for another period of six months. The results of the study show the ecological and economic value of upgrading the power conversion equipment to newly designed high-efficiency equipment.
