Data Centre World Keynote Theatre
Data centres and ICT are consuming ever increasing amount of energy while we struggle to limit the greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Higher use of renewable energy is required, and this has become a strategy for many data centre operators. The variable renewable energy introduces new challenges for the grid operators to maintain system stability and reliability. Data centres can be part of the solution by offering the required flexibility for the future power systems through frequency regulation and demand response, to help to contain the system frequency and protect the grid against large disturbances. Learn how Eaton's Energy Aware UPS products and UPS-as-a-Reserve feature have shown great potential to address the needs of grid operators for the fast frequency response and opens new possibilities for additional revenue, while helping to support renewable power generation for the sustainable future.
