Power control systems are essential to ensuring the reliability of emergency/backup power systems. Leading organizations, such as Digital Realty and Geisinger Health System, devote resources to evaluating possible power control improvements. And a recent ASCO/Building Operating Management survey of facility executives shows that there is a strong desire among facility executives for more power control information than they have now. The need for additional information is particularly strong among data center and heath care facility executives. However, many facility executives are not familiar with current technology options and best practices.
