UPS systems and efficient energy management

Businesses and organizations are under increasing pressure to reduce energy consumption and implement sustainable energy alternatives. New government incentives introduced April 1, 2010, have made this issue more pressing, as well as the consequences of not doing so and the benefits of switching to greener energy sources. From negative publicity for those who don’t comply with the new incentives to monetary benefits for those who do, the initiative offers both incentives and penalties appropriate to any business model.

For many businesses, from healthcare to financial institutions, it is critical to maintaining backup power at all times, as even a brief power outage can not only cost money but also endanger lives. This is why implementing a UPS system is considered essential today, but it can also be an area that is overlooked when it comes to saving energy. The UPS system operates at a very high level of performance, so it is not automatically the first destination when it comes to saving energy, but if the device is operating at such a high level, even the smallest changes can make a big difference. And thanks to constant innovation and the emergence of new modular UPS systems, saving energy becomes even easier.

New modular UPS systems allow the uninterruptible power supply to be carefully sized so that it fully covers the critical load, but does not produce too much power for that load size, so no energy is wasted. These modular systems can also be replaced over the life of the plant to meet changing critical load requirements, ensuring continued efficiency.

UPS systems provide peace of mind in the event of an AC mains failure, and the new modular designs provide this level of security while offering increased efficiency and a smaller, lighter footprint, making them more suitable for the business environment.
