New Delhi: Eaton, a global power management company, launched an industry-first data centre solution – EnergyAware UPS using UPS-as-a-reserve (UPSaaR) in India. The solution will enable data centres to contribute to renewable energy and also earn from their UPS investments. As per the estimates, a data centre could receive approximately $60,000 per MW / per year for its non-used capacity.
In India, the colocation/third-party data centre market is growing at a CAGR between 7 per cent and 8 per cent, raising the utilization levels of servers and increasing power requirements. EnergyAware is designed for data centre applications and can be used in any high-capacity IT load, industrial or manufacturing.
With its outstanding commitment to innovation, high-value solutions, and thought leadership, Eaton’s EnergyAware Solution has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan in the Indian UPS industry as a reserve system for data centres.
While addressing Eaton Managing Director-India, Electrical Sector Mr. Syed Sajjadh Ali commented, “As individuals and as an industry, we are all aware of our obligation to rethink our role as power consumers. The Data Centre industry continues to face challenges in reducing its carbon emissions and optimizing energy efficiency. Eaton’s EnergyAware technology allows large Data Centre operators to give back energy to the grid. The primary role of the UPS doesn’t change, but by creating UPS as a Reserve (UPSaaR) through EnergyAware, organizations can enable Energy Transition. With UPSaaR, organizations can offset both their Capex cost while contributing towards reducing the carbon footprint and enabling renewable energy.”
“We are delighted that the EnergyAware Solution has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan for its contribution to powering Data Centres of the future. We have created these innovative energy storage technologies for cities that can increase the number of renewables on the grid through providing much-needed stability, whilst still providing a commercial benefit.” Mr. Sajjadh Ali had commented.
