by working with OEMs to provide overall power to the system and at the board level. These solutions help

Embedded Power—GE’s Critical Power business designs, manufactures and markets embedded
power modules to provide AC/DC standard, as well as custom power supplies and DC/DC circuit
board mounted power modules for use within other original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
equipment. These embedded power products are used in the healthcare, communications,
computing, industrial and data storage markets.
Data Centers—Currently, information technology and telecommunications facilities account for
approximately 120 billion kilowatt hours of electricity annually, or 3 percent of all U.S. electricity
use. Not only can this put a strain on the local grid, but it also drives operational costs to
unprecedented heights. GE has been working with network providers to improve the efficiency and
reduce the environmental impact of their data centers. For instance, GE’s ENERGY STAR™-rated,
eBoost-equipped UPS can increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption and costs, allowing
for substantial savings over time.
Healthcare Facilities—GE’s automatic transfer switches and UPS technology provide critical backup
power in the event of a power disruption, ensuring that patients’ crucial medical equipment stays
on. This technology has been installed in Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center to supply
emergency power in the event of a local grid disruption.
Financial Markets—GE’s Critical Power business also plays a major role in keeping the power on in
financial institutions, such as banks and stock markets around the globe. Its’ power-switching and
UPS technologies ensure real-time trading and currency exchanges remain unaffected in the event
of a power disturbance.
Telecommunications—Products and services from GE’s Critical Power business are used by
telecom, wireless and cable broadband service providers to ensure an uninterrupted power supply
and to convert AC power from a primary power source, such as the electric utility grid, into
precisely controlled DC power used for datacenters, central offices, cell towers, outside-plant fiber
optics and customer premise facilities.
