Sunverge Energy Achieves Highest Industry Standard With UL Certification Of Its Sunverge SIS

SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunverge Energy, Inc., the leading developer of distributed energy storage solutions for intelligent and grid-interactive virtual power plant operations, announced today it has received UL 1778 certification from Intertek Testing Services for its Solar Integration System (SIS™). The UL 1778 certification incorporates conformance to UL 1741 and IEEE 1547.1 requirements for the interconnection of renewable and distributed energy resources with energy storage, and additionally encompasses relevant UL standards 1989, 1642, 60730-1, 873, and UL rating 50E for outdoor and indoor applications.

With UL certification of the Sunverge SIS™, Sunverge Energy meets the highest industry standards for safe and reliable implementation of energy storage devices (ES), power electronics connected distributed energy resources (DER), hybrid generation-storage systems (ES-DER), and plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) co-located with energy storage. Multiple layers of safety and security protection are built into the SIS™, from within individual components to electrical circuitry to software that constantly monitors and controls the system, both locally and in the cloud.   This "defense-in-depth" strategy is designed and optimized for the system as a whole, delivering enhanced safeguards beyond what individual batteries, battery management systems, and power electronics can provide.

Sunverge Energy Chairman and CTO Dean Sanders commented, "The Sunverge SIS™ performed extremely well throughout the entire test process. This certification signifies that Sunverge meets all of the product safety standards for connection to a utility power grid anywhere in the United States or other countries where UL standards are accepted."

"The Sunverge SIS™ was designed in collaboration with major U.S. and international utilities and defines the industry's highest benchmarks for grid applications of distributed resources.  We are grateful to have gained their insight and valuable feedback."

Commenting further, Sanders stated "the combination of certification testing and experienced gained through our utility partnerships have reinforced our belief that we are setting the pace in this rapidly emerging market.  In our residential, commercial, and utility distribution projects, Sunverge is delivering the industry's safest and most advanced distributed energy storage solutions."
