NPS capital raise enabling ongoing growth of its renewable technology business

Northern Power Systems Corp. (TSX:NPS), a next generation renewable energy technology provider, announced this week the completion of a reverse takeover transaction resulting in its public listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the ticker symbol “NPS.” Accompanying this transaction, Northern Power raised C$24.5M, enabling the company to drive its ongoing growth strategy with investment commitments across its three business lines: Product Sales and Services, Technology Licensing, and Technology Development.

“Both in emerging markets and in off-grid applications, there has been an increasing acknowledgement that distributed energy generation should be part of a responsible power generation profile, “stated Troy Patton, CEO Northern Power Systems. “We are already a leading provider of distributed class wind turbine technology leveraging a simple, low-maintenance permanent-magnet direct drive design, and this capital raise will allow us to continue our commitment to delivering advanced technology for this sector.”

Northern Power Systems intends to continue driving the success of its utility class license partners with developments to its high efficiency direct drive design. Further, the company will continue its efforts to expand new partnerships in select emerging markets and plans a commitment to direct sales and support of utility class turbines in certain regimes.

In addition to distributed and utility class turbine offerings, Northern Power Systems has extensive experience with hybrid power systems and provides simple, innovative solutions for grid modeling and power conversion. The company intends to expand its commitment to full design, sourcing, rapid-prototyping and testing capabilities that can quickly validate design concepts and help customers to rapidly commercialize products to solve today’s energy challenges.
