Advanced Energy showcaseS industry leading inverters AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS at solar power international 2012

Complete Solution Provider Demonstrates Continued Leadership in Delivering Lowest Possible LCOE

Orlando, Fla., SPI, Booth #3301—September 11, 2012—Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS) will be showcasing its energy management solutions suite at Solar Power International (SPI) this week in Orlando, Fla. Advanced Energy (AE) will have a number of its highly-reliable inverters on display, along with end-to-end energy management solutions, which reinforce its "Energy Delivered" promise to solar project stakeholders.

"We're excited to showcase our inverters and energy management solutions at SPI, which continue to lead the industry in terms of reliability and efficiency," said Gordon Tredger, president of AE Solar Energy. "Our industry-leading products, robust services and unsurpassed customer service demonstrate our commitment to accelerating project payback while increasing ROI for solar project developers, system owners and investors."

At the show, AE Solar Energy will showcase its utility-scale inverter, the AE 500NX-1kV, and its large commercial inverter, the AE 500TX. These inverters are purpose-built for large commercial and utility-scale projects. The inverters maximize energy harvest to accelerate project payback and deliver the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE), which investors have come to expect.

AE Solar Energy will also be highlighting its solutions beyond the inverter, including data monitoring, advanced controls, balance of system (BOS) components, operations and maintenance (O&M) services, applications, and system design engineering. These tools and resources all reinforce the company's commitment to maximizing energy harvest, reducing payback periods, and delivering the lowest possible LCOE for project stakeholders.

Every AE Solar Energy product is backed by extensive warranty coverage, ensuring there are no surprises during the warranty period. Extended warranties are also available as options. The warranty options are backed by AE's unsurpassed service and technical support team.

Also at the show, Advanced Energy will join representatives from AWS TruePower, the Department of Energy, the Electric Power Research Institute, Navigant Consulting, and Sandia National Laboratories on a panel titled Distributed and Utility-Scale Solar. The panel, scheduled for Wednesday, September 12 from 1:30–3:00 p.m. ET, will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of utility-scale versus distributed solar and how each impacts the grid differently.

AE's solar energy business delivers highly reliable inverters, complementary BOS products and robust O&M services that allow its customers to secure more solar projects and grow their business. AE Solar Energy enables utility scale, commercial and residential solar project stakeholders to offer system owners a lower LCOE and confidence their PV system will deliver on long-term production goals.
