Does Energy Storage Reduce Data Center Generator Requirements?

On Demand Until October 24, 2020

Duration:60 minutes

Credits: *1 AIA LU/Elective; 0.1 IACET CEU; 1 PDH 


There have been a lot of developments in energy storage technology over the last several years. This has been primarily driven by the general trend and expanded use of sustainable but intermittent power sources, such as wind and solar. Some data center designers and operators are examining how energy storage technology could also be utilized to reduce generator requirements.

However, for data center applications there are a number of issues to be considered, since continuous and reliable backup power is equally and, in some ways, perhaps even more important than primary utility service.

In this part of our series of webinars, we will examine considerations utilizing energy storage systems when specifying and selecting power systems for data centers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the categories and different technologies of energy storage systems.
  • Describe the key components and characteristics of various types of energy storage systems.
  • Explain how characteristics of energy storage systems can enhance or impact the availability of a data center during a utility outage.
  • Examine how the history and duration of utility outages in a specific location can help evaluate the potential effectiveness of incorporating energy storage systems for data center power backup applications.
