American provider of equipment and services for datacenters, Vertiv, announced to extend its service portfolio for their UK costumers on uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to save them energy costs.

In partnership with energy software specialist Upside Energy, Vertiv will couple a cloud-based platform with battery storage to monitor the UK customers’ energy use, release excess energy into the grid and serve as an emergency backup system at the same time. This distributed energy system is expected to bring benefits to the customers as well as to the public grid. Emiliano Cevenini, vice president of commercial and industrial vertical markets for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East and Africa, explained: “In today’s world, it is vital for organisations to optimise their energy consumption and costs – while we are not energy producers, we can definitely help companies leverage UPS battery storage and cut energy costs.”
