The average power consumption per server quadrupled from 2001 to 2006, while the average number of servers doubled and is expected to grow another 50% by 2010. This rapid growth has resulted in data centers typically consuming up to 100 times more energy per square foot than a typical office building.

After an intensive study of server and data center energy efficiency for Congress, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that the U.S. data center industry is in the midst of a major expansion period spurred by increased demand for IT capacity to support business growth. The Agency listed several trends that are stimulating this demand, including:
IT management is responding by building more data centers. In recent
To satisfy this robust demand for computing capacity, IT executives are
One result of this IT capacity growth is that data centers have become
As data center energy use increases, the cost of that energy is increasing
as well. According to Energy Insights, an IDC Company, a recent survey
for Johnson Controls revealed that “[s]eventy-nine percent of businesses
expect their energy costs to increase [over the next year]. More than half
believe prices will increase 6-20%.”6

Get an efficient power supply system based on lithium technology and receive 12V/24V and 230V/50Hz simultaneously.
The Clayton Power lithium battery system can be charged from the mains via a G3 Combi - inverter/charger, an alternator while driving or from other power sources.
Our lithium ion batteries can be connected in parallel to achieve scalable power capacity and output. Connect more inverters or inverter/chargers to get a greater 230V output and even faster charging times.
The G3 Combi - Inverter/Charger series, is a combined 230V power supply and intelligent multi charger in one compact unit.
