A commercial building being built today might incorporate backup power to be more resilient, to mitigate against financial losses, to protect life safety, to provide vital services, or some combination of these goals….all when the local power grid goes down. This course covers this important topic, exploring the motivations for using backup power, relevant code and standard requirements, and the fuel options for backup power generators. By the end of this course attendees will be to understand backup power in terms of: - what it means for a commercial building to integrate backup power, and common technology options which are used; - the impacts of power outages, the frequency of outages, and the motivations of commercial businesses to utilize backup power; - relevant codes and standards which address the need for - and design of - backup power systems in commercial buildings; - And the benefits and disadvantages of different fuel sources for backup power.



Learning Objectives:
  1. To gain familiarity with the impacts of power outages, the frequency of outages, and the motivations of commercial businesses to utilize backup power.
  2. To understand the relevant codes and standards which address the need for and design of backup power systems in commercial buildings.
  3. To understand benefits and disadvantages of different fuel sources for backup power.
  4. To review backup power application in off-grid building applications.
