Riello UPS Expands Its ECO Energy Rating System
13 October 2009
The new Energy Savings Calculator from Riello UPS is a useful comparison tool for data centre managers, electrical contractors and consultants
The tool allows the comparison of green credentials of Riello uninterruptible power supplies to competitor systems and the European Code of Conduct for UPS Energy Efficiency.
According to a recent study by Datacenter Dynamics, Energy Efficiency, Power consumption and Total Cost of Ownership are all key areas of concern for Data Centre and IT managers*. With this in mind, Riello UPS have developed an online calculator to help these customers quickly see the range of savings that can be made by using Power Protection from Riello - even comparing the results against an average competitor model and the benchmarks set out by the European CoC (Code of Conduct) for UPS efficiency.
By simply selecting the size of UPS required, and setting the operating conditions, users can clearly see how Power Protection from Riello UPS performs in terms of:
- Difference in Power Consumption
- Annual Energy Savings in kWh
- Annual Cost Savings
- Pollutant emission reductions in KgCO2
"Our industry-first Energy Rating System is a useful, guick-glance guide to the efficiency of Riello's UPS products," commented Robin Koffler, General Manager for Riello UPS Ltd. "And with our new, on-line Calculator, clients can immediately see just how efficient our UPS are; how we can help reduce CO² emissions and save money, all whilst providing absolute power continuity".
As an example, the calculator quickly works-out that a 100kVA MultiPlus MLT, running 24hrs a day, 365 days a year, carrying 75% load, would save an installation 9,766.83 kWh of energy annually compared to a rival model. This equates to 4,590.41 kgCO2 in pollutant emissions, or 1,465.02€ in energy costs that have been saved every year by choosing Power Protection from Riello UPS.
The new Energy Saving Calculator is part of a wider programme to make Riello UPS the most environmentally friendly power protection company in Europe. In addition to being the first UPS manufacturer to rate its products for energy efficiency, Riello UPS are actively involved in a range of other research & development programmes that concern the environment.
