As efforts continue to make scope 3 accounting more straightforward and widespread, recent research shows the new opportunity for data centers to reduce their climate impact is through their UPS batteries.
ZincFive’s NiZn batteries have shown advantages across a myriad of sustainability metrics, and offer users a method of minimizing their supply chain impacts. In multiple ways, these batteries proved a more climate-friendly option:
- Material use – nickel and zinc are four and five times more abundant in the earth’s crust than lithium and lead respectively
- 63% lower greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint compared to lithium-ion batteries
- Demands 96% less water than the average lithium-ion battery
