Today, customer demands have increased for energy and delivery capacity of power. Facility peak power demands and energy costs can vary by time of day, season, and weather condition. This is impacted by many factors, which is reflected in the customer costs in several ways. In many cases, utility peak rates also tend to rise in relationship to user demands.

Currently, more and more facilities are installing onsite back-up generators, as well as implementing solar and wind systems, which are inherently intermittent by their nature. This has raised the importance of managing and minimizing peak demands from utility power in order to gain maximum cost-reduction benefits for the facility.

This webinar will discuss the key aspects when considering intelligent power management systems and how they address the various requirements and issues related to supporting critical loads.
