• GE’s SG Series UPS with eBoost™ Technology Enables Rush University Medical Center to Implement New Critical Power Project;
• GE’s Patented Technology Poised to Help Mission-Critical Industries Comply with New International Data Center Efficiency Standards.

Reducing its energy consumption, the 664-bed Rush University Medical Center has installed GE’s (NYSE: GE) patented SG Series Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) with eBoost™ technology in a new critical power facility at the hospital’s campus in Chicago, Ill. The project supports The Green Grid (TGG) consortium’s goals to reduce the energy consumption of government and industrial data centers.

GE developed the ecomagination™-qualified (and ENERGY STAR™-certified) SG Series UPS with eBoost technology in response to the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s calls for businesses to reduce the energy consumption of data centers. In compliance with TGG’s new Data Center Maturity Model (DCMM), eBoost technology enables GE’s UPS to perform at operating efficiencies up to 99 percent.

“Energy consumption is a critical issue for IT organizations and healthcare facilities as their data center energy demands continue to grow,” said Jake Ring, chief marketing officer for GE Energy Management. “With our eBoost UPS technology, they can reduce cost, keep the datacenter running and reduce energy consumption—without sacrificing reliability.”

The Green Grid’s DCMM spells out specific steps to improve energy efficiency and sustainability across all aspects of a data center’s operations, including power, cooling, computing, storage and networking. The model also includes recommendations for “eco mode” operation for UPS technologies, which improves data center efficiency measured by power usage effectiveness (PUE). The EPA also included eco mode in the recent ENERGY STAR specification for UPS. GE’s SG Series UPS with eBoost is the first three-phase UPS to receive the EPA ENERGY STAR certification.

More than 40 SG Series UPS with eBoost technology have been deployed in the last two years, providing customers with more than 250,000 operating hours of performance data.

Rush University Medical Center’s new critical power system, featuring GE’s SG Series UPS with eBoost technology, began operating last year. Complying with a 10-second power restoration time mandated by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the city of Chicago, GE’s critical power system provides emergency and back-up power to Rush’s 13-building hospital from a central energy plant in 10 seconds or less. GE’s system enables critical, uninterrupted power to the East Tower Building’s telecommunications systems, with 99 percent energy efficiency in eBoost mode.

“Rush University Medical Center’s deployment of our SG Series UPS with eBoost technology illustrates how we work with a broad range of applications,” Ring continued. ”From computer data centers to healthcare facilities, financial companies, broadcast operations and other mission-critical businesses, we create custom solutions that follow TGG DCMM energy efficiency recommendations and lower PUE.”
