Emerson Network Power‘s Chloride Trinergy Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is on track to deliver savings of up to 80,000 tonnes of CO2 to UK businesses over the next five years. Chloride Trinergy is the first high power UPS with an adaptive algorithm that continually monitors the power supply and automatically selects the most efficient operating mode. This enables power-dependent businesses to optimise operating costs and, according to Emerson, to cut up to seven figures from electricity bills.
Chloride Trinergy already provides more than 100MW of back-up power to data centre applications in finance, government and dispersed networks worldwide. The technology is particularly suited to the UK where the growth of data centres and power-heavy businesses has been constrained by the availability of grid power. Chloride Trinergy is optimised to draw minimum current from the incoming AC supply, providing the user with more power from an existing electrical supply source than other UPS systems. Additionally, Chloride Trinergys qualification for Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs), along with the provisions of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly the Carbon Reduction Commitment), means that capital costs can be written off against taxable profits and that efficiency savings will attract financial rewards. According to Emerson, the Chloride Trinergy is the most efficient Class 1 UPS currently available for protecting mission critical infrastructure, such as Tier 3 and Tier 4 data centres, from disruptions to mains power supply.
At a conservative estimate the Chloride Trinergy devices already in use in the UK are set to cut around £10,000,000 from their operators electricity bills over the next five years not counting the base rate levy and additional penalties under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, explains Emiliano Cevenini, vice president marketing, EMEA, Emerson Network Power.
