Rethinking the role a UPS can play in the data centre

At the recent Powered On Live event, Jason Yates, Technical Services Manager at Riello UPS Ltd, detailed how the UPS could potentially play a larger role than just being a back-up.

During the session, Jason told us about Master+, a pioneering pilot project by Riello UPS in partnership with RWE that enables large-scale energy users such as data centres and industrial plants to rethink the role of their UPS.

The innovative concept enables organisations to transform their UPS systems into ‘virtual power plants’ that feed stored electricity back into the grid, resulting in enhanced system reliability, expanded battery capacity, and reduced running costs, as well as lower grid tariffs and the potential to earn additional revenues through frequency response schemes.
