INDUSTRY NEWS: posted 12 April 2018

Riello UPS has been named as a finalist in the ‘Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year’ at the DCS Awards 2018.

The critical power protection specialist has been nominated thanks to a project that helped reduce one client’s annual carbon emissions from 2,147kg to 603.5kg, a reduction of nearly 72%.

Riello UPS teamed up with electrical contractor The Rosebery Group to completely overhaul the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems installed across two huge datacentres belonging to one of the world’s largest consumer goods suppliers.

The upgrade saw Riello UPS’s super-efficient Multi Power modular UPS units replace the existing equipment in both data centres, with the resulting efficiency improvements saving the client a staggering £335,000 on their annual energy costs. Air conditioning requirements across the two sites were also slashed by 71.81%, resulting in annual energy savings of 297.3 kW.

In total, more than 1.25 million kWh of energy have been saved because of the project, enough electricity to power 316 typical UK homes for a year. 

The DCS Awards are an annual celebration of excellence amongst suppliers, designers, manufacturers, and operators in the UK’s booming data centre sector. Riello UPS has been recognised at the previous two year’s awards ceremonies, winning ‘Product of the Year’ in 2017 for its Multi Power Combo, and claiming the ‘Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year’ in 2016, and is going for a hat-trick of successes in 2018.

This year’s overall winners are again decided by a public vote. To vote online for Riello UPS to win, visit the DCS Awards website http://www.dcsawards.com/voting.php before the closing date of Friday 11 May.

Votes are only eligible from a valid business email address (third-party providers such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail aren’t acceptable) and only one vote per award category per person is allowed.

Winners will be revealed at a black-tie gala ceremony staged on Thursday 24 May at London’s 5-star Grange St Paul’s Hotel, which overlooks the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral.
