Power-One Enters Into Strategic Alliance With Panasonic

CAMARILLO, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power-One, Inc. (Nasdaq:PWER), a leading global manufacturer of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and management solutions, and Panasonic Corporation (NYSE:PC), a worldwide leader in the development and manufacture of electronic products and solutions, announced today that they have entered into a strategic alliance to develop, produce and market energy storage systems for the residential and non-residential markets worldwide combining Power-One inverters with Panasonic lithium-ion batteries and systems.

As part of the agreement, the companies will leverage their respective research and development and sales and marketing resources for joint product and market development around the world. Initial efforts will focus on developing the residential, commercial and utility-scale, grid-connected, energy storage systems business in Europe and the U.S. as well as the non-residential segment in Japan.

"Energy storage resources will greatly increase the adoption, use and sustainability of renewable energy systems throughout the world in homes, businesses, and in large utility plants. Panasonic's strengths lie in the development, production and sale of products like their home energy management systems (HEMS) and lithium-ion battery cells, which are vital for power storage systems. Combining Panasonic's expertise in battery and battery storage with our advanced inverter technology should prove to be an unbeatable combination."
