Emerson Network Power has today announced that it is on track to deliver savings of up to 80,000 tonnes of CO2 to UK businesses over the next five years and moreover, that the UPS facility is primed for still more cost-savings in growth economies.

The bold statement was made with regard to Chloride Trinergy, which is the first high power uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) with an adaptive algorithm that continually monitors the power supply and automatically selects the most efficient operating mode.

But just what does this mean for businesses in the UK and further afield?

According to Emerson, the translation is simple – cost savings. Just today, in an official corporate statement, the firm promised to, “optimise operating costs and to cut up to seven figures from electricity bills”. In short, the device draws minimum current from incoming AC supply, while the device cost itself is eligible for capital off-setting from carbon reduction programs such as the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.

Of particular relevance to regions with infrastructural problems, such as typical emerging economies, is the fact that Emerson brands itself as the most efficient Class 1 UPS. This means that it is adapted to protect mission critical infrastructure from disruptions to mains power supply; a point that is especially apt to Tier 3 and Tier 4 data centres.

Emiliano Cevenini, Vice President of Marketing EMEA, Emerson Network Power, explained, “End users, consultants and contractors are increasingly won-over by the commercial attractiveness of Chloride Trinergy as part of a bigger power protection package or where switchgear or generator capacity already exists.”

Cevenini added, “The Chloride Trinergy’s unique concept with its adaptive algorithm is riding data centre demand for total reliability, cutting the cost of critical power and infrastructure availability.$quot;

Appealing by the sounds of it, but even more attractive once the fiscal benefits are taken into account. Cevenini went on to explain, $quot;At a conservative estimate the Chloride Trinergy devices already in use in the UK are set to cut around £10,000,000 from their operator’s electricity bills over the next five years – not counting the base rate levy and additional penalties under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.$quot;
