h1. Retail Offices and Distribution Warehouse Power Solutions Resilient power protection within retail environments is crucial to efficient stock management, financial accounting and store security. Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) terminals must be protected from local mains power pollution and this can be best achieved by an under-the-counter wall-mounted or shelf-mounted small UPS system. Collating information from the EPoS terminals, back-office file servers run the stock control management software responsible for keeping shelves stocked, accounts in order and assisting corporate performance monitoring. Here the loads are general small servers, server racks or comms rooms, housing both the IT and telecoms software facilities. For retail chain stores (wether city-based or based out of town), a large electrical demand is placed locally by refrigeration units (and in-store access, security and lighting systems). Local critical power generators are designed to provide standby power when the mains power supply fails and/or to support local UPS systems. Regular preventative maintenance and testing, is vital to the performance of these generators which must be capable of working first time, when called upon to start. Without standby power during a mains power failure, refrigerators will cease to function, fresh and frozen foods will perish and stores will have to close because they can no longer operate safely. h2.

Energy Managers within retail companies are adopting ISO50001 and other such management processes to reduce energy consumption, reduce carbon footprints and meet Corporate Social Responsibilities. To assist this they are investing in energy management systems and software solutions that can track kWh usage, load profiles and manage these remotely.
