- a few days ago there was posted a comment about the proposed expansion of the server farms on Paul St. and their backup generation needs. I just came across this upcoming conference in NYC on exactly that topic.
Auxiliary Power: Backup Strategies that work
Friday, July 26, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)
New York, NY
Hurricane Sandy knocked out electrical and gas power to hundreds of thousands of affordable multifamily buildings, leaving residents and building operators without pumps, hot water, refrigeration, lights, and ability to charge critical equipment and exposed the real need for back-up power in emergency situations. Backup power affords building operators the ability to power core equipment during power outages.
At this Resilience Speakers session, we will review backup power equipment design including placement of system and critical building equipment load analysis; operations and maintenance; code and regulatory compliance; as well as best practices for temporary and permanent generator installation. All facility managers, plant operators, developers, and property owners are welcome to the latest installment of the Resiliency Speakers Series.
