Eaton Dual-Purpose UPS Technology Can Create Additional Revenue

Eaton worked with Microsoft at the Microsoft Innovation Center to harness the energy storage capabilities of a lithium-ion battery-powered UPS to serve as a distributed energy resource (DER) for grid operators. A layer of software algorithms and controls were added to a dual-purpose UPS to enable communication with the power grid. Serving in this role, the UPS can provide and receive energy from the grid, aiding in frequency regulation initiatives and creating an additional revenue stream for operators.

Dual-purpose UPS functionality will allow customers to put their UPS and lithium-ion batteries to work around the clock as a value-generating asset that lowers energy bills and provides grid support services.
