Energy Pool, Schneider Electric, Sojitz and Tepco Launch the Design of First Demand Response Demonstration Project for Japanese Industry
Nov 29 13
The consortium comprising Energy Pool, Schneider Electric and Sojitz announced that they had been selected to design an industrial demand response demonstration project for Japan through the Next Generation Energy and Social System Demonstration Projects 2013 open recruitment program conducted by the New Energy Promotion Council (NEPC). This project, launched in partnership with TEPCO, is a first in Japan. The design of the demonstration project will use the European iDR model as a reference while tailoring it to the power distribution system and to the specific features of the Japanese industry. The project will leverage the expertise and experience of four partners. Energy Pool will bring its experience and expertise in demand response for the industrial sector, will be responsible for setting up the Network Operation Center (NOC) and operations throughout the demonstration project. Schneider Electric will contribute through its expertise in industrial process supervision and automation, and will host the NOC in its Tokyo offices. Sojitz, the managing company, will liaise with participating companies, authorities and organizations, will bring to the project its network of business relationship with industrial end-users and its know-how regarding business development in Japan. TEPCO will bring its operational experience in power grid balancing and use the DR service through the demonstration project. Scheduled for deployment by 2014, the demonstration project will reach a capacity of 50 MW, equivalent to the average residential consumption of a city of more than 200,000 inhabitants in Japan-1. The consortium's mission will also include proposing recommendations about regulation and operational processes in the context of the Japanese electric system reform plan.

Schneider Electric Announces Availability of Prefabricated Data Centers up to 2MW
Oct 29 13
Schneider Electric sets a new standard in prefabricated data centers with the introduction of 15 prefabricated data center modules and 14 new prefabricated Data Center Reference Designs. The reference designs detail complete data centers scalable in 250kW to 2MW increments and meet Uptime Tier II and Tier III standards. The new prefabricated modules deliver IT, power, and/or cooling integrated with best-in-class data center infrastructure components and StruxureWare(TM) Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software for an easy-to-deploy, predictable data center. Prefabricated modules range in capacities from 90kW to 1.2MW and are customizable to meet end user requirements. As flexible capacity becomes critical to data center operations, modular expansion is becoming a compelling option for data center and facilities managers. With Schneider Electric's announcement of the industry's first complete library of prefabricated data center reference designs, data center managers looking to optimize deployment speed, performance, reliability and cost have a pre-engineered starting point to realize significant improvements in: Speed of Deployment - Prefabricated modules are delivered on-site preconfigured and pretested for an easy installation with a lead time of 12-16 weeks, depending on the level of project complexity. Site preparation and module production can be completed concurrently, resulting in minimized on-site construction and deployment time. Flexibility and Scalability - Various module options and configurations enable the infrastructure to be deployed and scaled as needed to meet demand. Capital spending reductions result from eliminating complicated new construction or expensive building retrofits. Predictability - Prefabrication and factory testing reduces human error and on-site construction risks while improving compliance, safety, and efficiency. Design and manufacturing are closely coupled to greatly minimize uncertainty, which results in more predictable performance of the data center infrastructure.
