Anyone with energy efficiency high on the agenda might be interested to read an article on Riello UPS’s corporate blog. It’s about ISO 150001 on Energy Management and it explains what the standard is, why it matters and what the benefits are.
Many of you will be familiar with BS 16001 for Energy Management, well, ISO 150001 was introduced by the BSI on 15th June 2011 and is expected to replace the out-dated standard completely sometime this year (2012).
The International Standards Organisation states that ISO 150001 could influence as much as 60% of the world’s energy use and it is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes.
Riello UPS was one of the first UPS companies to latch onto the energy efficiency initiative and we have spent years investing in researching and developing the most energy efficient and yet robust and reliable power protection products available. We’ve not stopped at efficient operation either, for us efficiency is not just about electrical consumption. It’s about the lifetime of products and beyond. Running costs should be minimised and design life maximised. Then, when the product comes to the end of its useful life (which all technology products do) or is superseded (which all technology products are at some point), ensuring it can be removed, dismantled and/or recycled easily, efficiently and with minimal environmental affect.

It also mentions our Multi Guard modular UPS, which enables an N+X parallel UPS system to be created out of multiples of 15kVA, individual UPS modules. It incorporates a drawer style design inside a standard rack cabinet – excellent for right-sizing a UPS system for today, whilst allowing for easy expansion tomorrow – and achieving high operating efficiency.
