  • The rollout of a new battery energy storage system (BESS) with lithium-ion batteries that provides utility-scale energy storage that can be used as an always-on power supply, helping customers support operational resilience, avoid peak demand charges, and rely more on alternative distributed energy resources such as solar panels, wind turbines, and hydrogen fuel cells to help reduce carbon emissions and maintain reliability. The microgrid solution was also unveiled at the Vertiv Delaware, Ohio facility as a Customer Experience Center, leveraging both solar arrays and hydrogen fuel cells as alternative energy sources that will provide energy for Vertiv operations and operate as a test bed to demonstrate the reduced carbon emissions solution for customers.
  • The introduction of the Vertiv TimberMod, featuring mass timber as a key structural component instead of steel for prefabricated modular (PFM) data centre solutions, providing the potential to minimise resource depletion and lower the product’s carbon footprint as compared to steel alternatives.
  • A refreshed Guide to Data Center Sustainability with updated statistics and other relevant information to aid Vertiv’s customers and other stakeholders.
  • An update on Vertiv’s operational efficiency efforts to track and monitor the company’s primary environmental impacts and refine processes to streamline the collection of metrics related to carbon emissions, energy consumption, water usage, and waste generation and recycling. A notable example is the Monterrey, Mexico, facility water reclamation system, which reduces the operation’s reliance on the city water supply by collecting water from the air conditioning units used to cool the facility and turns it into water usable for other purposes.
  • Examples of how Vertiv is making an impact in the communities we serve.
  • A report on Vertiv’s commitment to supply chain integrity to assure compliance with leading industry standards for responsible minerals, human rights, and labour conditions.
