    Eaton, Microsoft collaborate to boost power sector

    June 22, 2022 - Punch, The (Nigeria)


      Intelligent power management company, Eaton, has announced that it will expand its collaboration with Microsoft to accelerate applications of its EnergyAware uninterruptible power system technology in key segments worldwide.

      This expansion is part of a new strategic framework agreement between Eaton and Microsoft designed to address major industry developments, including digital transformation, sustainability and the energy transition.

      This will allow for a new generation of 'grid-interactive' data centers, including those operated by Microsoft, to support grid operators with the provision of critical flexibility services.
