Case Study: Reduce Costs And Increase Reliability With Master+
Master+ is a pioneering concept developed by Riello UPS in partnership with energy trading specialists RWE which combines demand side response with enhanced system resilience.
It enables data centre operators to rethink the role of their uninterruptible power supplies, transforming them into a “Virtual Power Plant” that helps to balance the electricity network.
Batteries are divided into two roles: the first only provides emergency backup in case of a power failure. A second commercial segment stores energy to help balance the grid by Firm Frequency Response, offering operators additional revenue as well as potentially cutting their grid tariff costs.
