Energetix Group plc, which develops and commercialises alternative and efficient energy products,announces that the three DC100 compressed air batteries supplied to the Co-operative Financial Services by Energetix Pnu Power Limited, have gone live.....
The Co-operative Banking Group operates through the brands The Co-operative Bank, The Co-operative Insurance, The Co-operative Investments, The Co-operative Asset Management, Britannia, Platform and smile, the internet bank. CFS was the Regional winner for Europe of the Most Sustainable Bank of the Year award at the FT/IFC sustainable bank awards 2011.
DC100's flexible backup time, high efficiency and low maintenance are key benefits of the design. Internal estimates suggest that a typical 2MW Data Centre could save more than £1.75 million of electricity over its 20 year life by installing the Pnu Power DC100 solution rather than a typical rotary system, and also reduce total CO2 emissions by over 90% over that period.
To date, the Pnu Power product range has been sold in to the telecommunications and grid switching markets with systems in the 2kW to 20kW range. This installation at the Pyramid Building will increase the product range up to 300 kW and will be the first system deployed in the higher powered data centre market.
Adrian Hutchings, Chief Executive Officer of Energetix, stated: "We are delighted that our products are now running live at such a prestigious reference site. We are very pleased that Co-operative Financial Services has agreed that we can use this installation as a demonstration and reference point to the wider data centre market."
