ROI Analysis for Lithium-Ion Batteries in Data Center UPS Installations

Jeffrey VanZwol, Chief Marketing Officer • Green Cubes Technology

This session will discuss the ROI and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) examples for stationary UPS’s installed in data centers with three different types of battery chemistries – Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP), Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC), and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA).  These examples are based on pre- and post-installation analysis of data center operations, and highlight expected benefits before installation and realized returns after installation. Key parameters highlighted in this analysis include capital acquisition cost, battery cycle life, power consumption for charging, floor/rack space, and cooling expenses.
