London, Ontario (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
Expecting exponential growth upwards of $10 Billion USD by 2015, the UPS market is setting its sights far and wide with acquisitions and green innovations dominating the industry, according to Info-Tech Research Group. A recent UPS Vendor Landscape report, published by Info-Tech Research Group, ranked Emerson Network Power/Liebert and Eaton Corporation as Champions in a market where rising prices and penalties for carbon emission will lead the way to greener and more efficient solutions.
“While innovation for UPS architecture will continue to develop slowly, green initiatives will continue to gain momentum in the market as demands for higher efficiencies and lower carbon footprints increase and new technologies become available,” said Darin Stahl, Lead Research Analyst for Info-Tech Research Group. “Flywheel solutions, in particular, will become an increasingly popular option for ride-through power in large scale environments. Lithium-ion batteries will begin to emerge into the market as a more efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to the standard lead-acid batteries, but won’t gain momentum for at least another five years.”
Landing as a Champion, Emerson Network Power/Liebert provides a strong global solution and support network with its efficient UPS. With a strong service network that includes over 400 field engineers, response times of two hours, and four hours for three-phase facilities, Emerson’s sales channels and service capabilities in the North American and global markets exceed competitors.
Also a Champion and the recipient of the Value Award, Eaton Powerware combines its long-term UPS expertise with an overall power management solution. Eaton’s Energy Saver System allows the 9395 to operate at 99% efficiency, significantly reducing operating costs.
The Trend Setter Award goes to Active Power, for its focus on end-to-end flywheel designs, enhanced management software, lifetime warranty, and focus on green technology. Ranking as an Emerging Player in the report, Active Power is a leader in the design and manufacture of battery-free UPS systems and continuous power solutions. It holds 100+ global patents including UPS integration with flywheels in a single system.
