What Are the Real Benefits of Investing in UPS with Energy-saving Technology?

Global Trends in Energy Conservation

The increasing occurrence of extreme weather events has impelled governments and corporations to make energy conservation one of the priorities, driven by the imperative to reduce carbon emissions, promote sustainability, and achieve the ambitious goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. In response, energy efficiency emerges as a pivotal solution to meet these specific environmental objectives.

In 2022, the IEA reported record-high energy prices in multiple regions. Rising energy costs have imposed significant financial challenges on households and businesses, prompting increased focus on energy conservation. To maximize cost savings, individuals and companies employ diverse strategies to reduce energy consumption, including transitioning to energy-efficient appliances and deploying smart automation devices, such as central thermostats and smart lighting.

UPS Systems Using Less Energy Have More Benefits Than You Think

In response to the energy conservation trends, many electronic devices offer energy-saving features, and CyberPower's uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems are no exception. CyberPower's energy-efficient UPS systems can not only temporarily provide backup power for your critical applications but also offer additional benefits.

Saving Energy Costs

Users can effectively save on electricity bills by embracing energy-saving UPS systems, particularly in data centers. Making the switch to energy-efficient UPS systems can significantly lower operating costs. Besides, the energy-saving function keeps UPS systems at a lower temperature, which in turn helps to save on air conditioning fees.

Extending UPS Lifespan

The lifespan of UPS systems is closely related to heat generation. Lower heat levels result in longer service life. UPS systems with energy-saving features can reduce UPS power consumption and heat generation, thus extending their useful lives. Longer-lasting UPS systems can also defer replacement expenses, offering enhanced value for users.

Reducing Environmental Impacts

Energy-saving UPS systems are also more environmentally friendly. According to EMBER's global electricity review, fossil fuels generated 61% of global electricity, which is one of the largest sources of global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO₂). Therefore, using energy-saving UPS systems can reduce the emissions of CO₂ and carbon footprint from fossil fuel-generated electricity, thereby helping to mitigate environmental impacts.

Highlights of CyberPower's Green UPS Systems

Through years of dedication and investment in the green UPS design, CyberPower has achieved marvelous results we take great pride in.

ENERGY STAR Certification

ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol for energy-efficient products. As a pioneer in energy-saving technology, CyberPower maintains the leading position in the number of ENERGY STAR-certified products below 1kVA in capacity. Through years of dedicated effort, CyberPower has successfully reduced UPS system energy loss by up to 55% without compromising its performance, helping users to conserve energy and lower electricity costs.

GreenPower UPS™ Technology

Featured in most of CyberPower's UPS systems, the GreenPower UPS™ technology can reduce UPS energy consumption by up to 93%. It enhances UPS operating efficiency, lowers heat generation, and results in substantial energy cost savings compared to conventional UPS models. This patented technology includes two innovative designs, high-efficiency and bypass circuit designs.

High-efficiency Design

CyberPower has introduced advanced, compact, and energy-efficient inverters and chargers in place of conventional UPS designs, which can significantly enhance system power efficiency and reduce power consumption.

Bypass Circuit Design

This feature includes an exclusive bypass switch and a dual charger system. When the battery is fully charged, the bypass switch automatically disconnects the quick charger, preventing energy waste and resulting in significant cost savings for users.

The GreenPower UPS™ technology can help you reduce UPS power consumption and its electric bills, making your UPS pay for itself in the long run. For instance, purchasing CyberPower UT1200EG UPS can help you save up to US$46 per year compared to conventional UPS, meaning that over three years, the maximum savings nearly match the purchase price of the UPS.

*Note: Electric bill savings are calculated based on selling prices from Amazon.de and electricity prices from GlobalPetrolPrices.com with UPS performing under 150W load conditions. The actual savings may vary according to UPS selling prices and electricity prices in each region. Currency is shown in USD for consistency purpose.

Online ECO Mode

Some advanced UPS systems feature Online ECO mode, which automatically adjusts the operation mode based on the quality of utility power. In case of unstable utility power, the UPS system switches to line mode to ensure the best power quality and protection. When utility power is stable, the UPS system transfers to ECO mode to increase the system efficiency by up to 98.4%, greatly reducing UPS power consumption.

Here are some examples of CyberPower OL10KERTHD UPS electric bill savings by running in ECO mode.
