China, a new facility located on the country's east coast. Prior to
that, Active Power installed a similar system to a large cloud based
data center in the Shanxi province in western China.

estimated 20 percent compounded annual growth rate over the next five
years. Nearly $6 billion has been invested in the market over the
last 12 months and is forecasted to grow to $7.5 billion from
2012-2013. Beijing in particula

its data center business as end user white space grew 45 percent from
2011 to 2012.(1)
