Nextek Featured on TechConnect’s Innovation Spotlight

Nextek Power Systems’ power server solution is featured on the TechConnect Innovation Spotlight, as a follow up to a presentation made at the TechConnect World’s Utility Technology Challenge (UTC) in Santa Clara, CA earlier this year. The article notes that Nexteks Direct Coupling® technology improves energy efficiency by 10% to 42% by utilizing the lowest cost sources of power first, before resorting to AC grid power. The system also improves efficiency by directly connecting DC loads to DC power, avoiding the power losses inherent in inverting power to AC and back again, as other systems do.

Nextek Key Accounts Manager Jeff Daudert, who attended UTC, said the event was a great opportunity to share the company’s advancements with representatives of other companies and technologies. For more information about Nextek’s Direct Coupling® and other technologies, contact us at
