Data centers is one of the fastest growing markets for energy storage. The global data center UPS market size is $4.58B and anticipated to reach USD 6.53 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of cloud computing services and soaring need for uninterrupted power to ensure efficient operations in banks, financial institutions, and businesses are expected to propel the data center uninterruptible power supply market. The lead-acid battery segment accounted for more than 95% of the market in 2017, followed by the lithium-ion.
NiZn: The Ideal Solution
NiZn has a value proposition that reduces the footprint and lifecycle costs over lead acid. It also provides a cost improvement over lithium and reduces the safety concerns and complexity of the Battery Management and controls required to prevent thermal runaway. As you can see from the chart below using costs provided by one of the largest co-location data center owners in the country, NiZn provides the lowest 20-year lifecycle cost for centrally located UPS systems.
5G is expected to become the backbone for telecommunication in the coming years.
Most telecom operators are embarking on network upgrades and new build-outs in the next few years to accommodate the increasing traffic, to offer enhanced mobile broadband, to cater to the “Internet of Things”, and mission-critical applications. This trend, resulting in an increased infrastructure investment by Telecos and Tower companies, in turn is set to significantly boost demand for backup power systems essential to maintain nearly 100 percent uptime.
Beginning in 2019, EE, Vodafone, O2 have rolled out 5G networks in the UK. Telecos will begin to deploy necessary 5G infrastructure including new telecom towers and BTS stations, which will ramp up the demand for back-up power equipment such as batteries.
Æsir’s Nickel Zinc technology is an ideal solution for 5G providing a unique combination of longer life, greater capacity and unparalleled safety for critical infrastructure. Æsir has undergone successful testing under the telecom standards and is currently engaged with several 5G providers.
