Johnson Controls, NFBPA to develop a sustainability-focused professional development program

Three-year sponsorship to focus on developing public managers' expertise in sustainability

May 14th, 2009

As part of a three-year sponsorship, Johnson Controls will work collaboratively with the NFBPA and Southern University to develop curriculum for the program.

American Superconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: AMSC), a leading energy technologies company, announces that it has received an order worth more than $10 million from ACCIONA Energy, a division of ACCIONA SA (MC: ANA) and a world leader in renewable power, for its new Dynamic VAR Ride Through (D-VAR RT) solution. Building on AMSC's highly successful D-VAR platform, which provides critical dynamic reactive compensation required to connect many wind farms around the world to the power grid, the company's D-VAR RT product enables individual wind turbines to continue operating smoothly by "riding through" voltage disturbances on power grids that might otherwise interrupt their operation. The D-VAR RT product meets stringent grid interconnection requirements, including Spain's new Procedimiento de Operación 12.3 requirement for both existing and new wind turbines.
