Data centers are responsible for about 1% of electricity consumption worldwide. Operators deploy UPSs in data centers to minimize disruptions caused by unstable electric supply, enhancing data center reliability. New technologies allow UPSs to interact with the electric grid. UPSs with such capabilities are commonly referred to as smart grid ready, grid support, grid interactive, distributed energy resources, as a reserve, or energy aware. We will refer to them as smart grid ready UPS for this presentation. Smart grid ready UPS and energy storage systems contribute to more efficient and sustainable energy use and to system flexibility, enabling the integration of variable renewable energy resources.
* Create awareness to understand smart grid ready UPS technology.
* Learn about the different modes of operation of smart grid ready UPS.
* Recognize how smart grid ready UPS and energy storage systems can contribute for an even more sustainable data center.
* The importance and challenges of integrating renewable energy resources into the power equation in data centers.
