UPSs can always be provided with sufficient battery autonomy to allow a safe system shutdown if the mains power fails. However, battery autonomies are ultimately always finite, therefore batteries alone are insufficient for systems that must remain up and running through power blackouts of extended and unknown duration. In such situations, the batteries must be complemented by a standby generator that can offer power availability for an indefinite period of time.
Since the financial crisis, capital for new projects has become much harder to obtain. Businesses are instead starting to use a modular, scalable approach to their data centre requirements; starting from a minimal size and growing incrementally in pace with the demand for capacity.
How UPS providers can respond to the challenge of increased power demands while maintaining the availability and energy efficiency standards enjoyed by lower power installations.
