Vertiv Adopts BESS

Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, rolled out a new battery energy storage system (BESS) with lithium-ion batteries that provides utility-scale energy storage capable of being used as an always-on power supply.

The addition of the BESS will help customers by providing operational resilience, avoiding peak demand charges and relying more on alternative distributed energy resources such as solar panels, wind turbines and hydrogen fuel cells to help reduce carbon emissions and maintain reliability. 

The microgrid solution was also unveiled at the Vertiv Delaware, Ohio, facility as a Customer Experience Center, leveraging both solar arrays and hydrogen fuel cells as alternative energy sources that will provide energy for Vertiv operations and operate as a test bed to demonstrate the reduced carbon emissions solution for customers.

Vertiv released details in its 2023 Responsible Business Report.

In 2023, Vertiv continued to focus on efficient products and systems and expanded its offering of both high-efficiency liquid cooling solutions and low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants to help Vertiv customers advance their AI initiatives and enable performance with a lower environmental impact.

Vertiv introduced Vertiv™ TimberMod™, featuring mass timber as a key structural component instead of steel for prefabricated modular (PFM) data center solutions, providing the potential to minimize resource depletion and lower the product’s carbon footprint as compared to steel alternatives.

The company also updated its operational efficiency efforts to track and monitor the company’s primary environmental impacts and refine processes to streamline the collection of metrics related to carbon emissions, energy consumption, water usage, and waste generation and recycling. 

At Vertiv’s Monterrey, Mexico, facility water reclamation system, the company reduced reliance on the city’s water supply by collecting water from the air conditioning units used to cool the facility and turning it into water usable for other purposes.

“We continue to advance our efforts to be a responsible global and corporate citizen while simultaneously providing products and services that help our customers achieve their own environmental sustainability goals,” said Giordano Albertazzi, Vertiv CEO, in a statement. “With demand for AI growing rapidly across the world, we at Vertiv are providing infrastructure products, systems and services that enable our customers to advance their AI initiatives with high performance and a lower environmental impact.”
