 Tokyo, May 28, 2015 - Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. (TSE:6504) (“FE”), headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, led by President Michihiro Kitazawa, is pleased to announce that it has concluded a sales agreement with 2G Energietechnik GmbH ("2G"), headquartered in Heek, North Rhine-Westphalia, Federal Republic of Germany, led by Representative Christian Grotholt, for the company's gas engine cogeneration systems for the purpose of strengthening FE's power stabilization solution business.


 Since the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, a key issue in Japan has been providing a more resilient energy supply network. To that end, construction of distributed energy systems and improvement of energy efficiency of facilities have been carried forward. In other countries, mainly in Southeast Asia, which has seen continuous economic growth, there has been increasing demand for power stabilization and improved power supply quality has been increasing in industrial complexes and other areas.
 Against this background, FE is moving ahead with strengthening the power stabilization solution business, which contributes to solving energy issues through the optimized use of electrical and thermal energy, and working to actively roll it out in the global market.
