  • EnergyAware UPS

    Eaton is expanding the role of the UPS, enabling you to do more with deployed assets. With Eaton’s EnergyAware UPS, protect valuable equipment while leveraging UPS batteries to reduce facility operating costs or earn revenue through energy market participation.

EnergyAware allows you to do more with deployed assets

EnergyAware enables facilities to support sustainable energy solutions, optimize the cost of powering buildings and earn additional revenue from assets currently deployed, while maintaining complete control of deployed UPS and battery assets.

  • You decide when to participate and how much capacity to offer.
  • Configurable HMI screens give the user control of all aspects of the system.
  • Utilize Eaton’s scheduling and dispatch functions, or command externally through the MESA-compliant Modbus TCP interface.
  • Programmable minimum runtime and load levels ensure critical load is always protected.
  • Eaton’s proprietary algorithms secure the pre-determined battery capacity for mission critical applications, never sacrificing the primary objective of clean and secure backup.
  • Fully scalable and can flexibly adapt to your regional utility programs, rate structures and load profiles.
  • Available on new Eaton UPS systems, or in many cases can be field retrofitted to existing products.

Interested in putting your mission critical UPS and battery assets to work for your bottom line? EnergyAware can help you do more:

  • If your utility rate structure includes high demand charges, UPS batteries can be called on to curtail peak power draw from the utility, reducing costly demand charges.
  • For facilities with time-of-use rates, supplement your load with UPS batteries during periods of high energy rates, re-charging batteries during times of low energy prices.
  • Supplement existing load reduction techniques or generator use when participating in utility-sponsored demand response (DR) programs. Seamlessly integrate UPS assets to multiply payout for DR participation.
  • Deploy UPS assets to participate in frequency response programs—available in the Mid-Atlantic (PJM) region today, with other regions coming soon.
  • Ideal for facilities with UPS assets in need of battery replacements. Utilize existing UPS hardware, while upgrading to longer-life lithium batteries.
  • Enables full utilization of available capacity. Perfect for N+1 systems.
