APC by Schneider Electric has announced it was selected as a winner in the Energy Efficient Products category of the 2009 Green Enterprise IT (GEIT) Awards, presented by the Uptime Institute and co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. Award winners were announced at a ceremony at Uptime Institute’s Fourth Annual Institute Research Symposium: Lean, Clean, and Green, in New York City.

The GEIT Awards honor companies that have made significant strides in creating reliable, sustainable, and energy-efficient data centers. APC’s InRow cooling products with active response controls and integrated thermal containment was selected as a winner for its innovation and leadership in driving sustainability initiatives.

All GEIT Awards winners presented case studies of their award-winning initiatives for addressing data-center energy-efficiency challenges at the Institute’s symposium. APC shared lessons learned and its route to success to encourage its industry peers to be advocates of change in their own organizations. The GEIT Awards judging criteria specifically were designed to select projects with potential to serve as business case studies of the realistic impact and feasibility of energy-efficiency initiatives.
