ARLINGTON, Wash.--OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile applications, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology. Based on a set of five criteria‒innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz‒OutBack Power was selected as a Global 200 company by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe.

The GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's seventh annual GoingGreen Silicon Valley, November 27 and 28, 2012, at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco. At the two-day event, cutting-edge green tech CEOs will meet their counterparts in broad industry sectors and discuss how green technology innovation can transform trillion-dollar industries not only through addressing pollution and ecosystem restoration, but also by bringing more abundance and prosperity.

"This year's GoingGreen Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators. Green tech research is maturing rapidly, and as it couples with technology innovators and investors, companies are emerging that have the ability to change the way we live our lives for the better and bring huge returns to their founders and funders," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's GoingGreen Global 200 winners are pushing the bounds of how technology can bring about change in the war on our planet's waning resources. The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and see them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses."

The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green technology industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
