Eaton Electric - Economic Impact of Severe Blackouts Could Run into Billions of Pound

April 2015

Eaton Electric - Economic Impact of Severe Blackouts Could Run into Billions of Pounds

Power Management - Power Distribution - Energy Management - Power Control
Eaton Power Lines

Electrical blackouts could cost the UK economy billions of pounds and with the number of incidents on the rise, organisations are being warned not to underestimate the threat to supply. These are just some of the conclusions from Eaton’s latest annual Blackout Tracker UK Report that provides a comprehensive overview of power outages in 2014 and their potentially disastrous effects.

Now in its fifth year, the Blackout Tracker UK Report is a vital resource for those concerned about this issue. “The 2014 edition contains a wealth of information including the most significant and unusual reported outages, as well as the impact that emerging threats such as drones pose to power supply continuity,” said Steve Spicer, Eaton. “It also features a detailed geographical breakdown of reported outages and their causes by country and region.”

The report reveals that there were 537 reported power outages in 2014, compared with 505 in 2013, 246 in 2012 and 241 in 2011. The most common reasons for disruption were faulty equipment and human error but animals knocking over electricity power lines, vehicle accidents, weather, theft and vandalism were also responsible. The scale of the problem is immense and a staggering 1,059,472 people were affected by outages that lasted an average of 67 minutes each.

With more businesses than ever relying on the Internet and their IT network infrastructures, a blackout of just a few minutes can have serious financial repercussions. Last year, Avaya polled 702 IT professionals in organisations with 250 or more employees across eight European companies, and found that 77 percent had experienced a loss of revenue as a result of outages.

The Blackout Tracker report also highlights the precarious position of the UK’s electricity generating capacity. The UK’s energy regulator, Ofgem, remains concerned about the National Grid's ability to meet demand in upcoming winters, as energy capacity declines due to the closure of ageing power stations and consumers using more electricity. It has estimated that in the expected low point of winter 2015-16, the capacity margin could be as low as two percent.

“The findings contained in the Blackout Tracker UK Annual Report 2014 confirm that this problem is unlikely to go away any time soon,” concluded Steve. “I hope that this information will act as an incentive for organisations to take preventive measures and ensure they have a reliable power infrastructure solution that can protect against costly and potentially devastating power failures. It is only by doing so that business continuity can be maintained and any disruption minimised.”

Eaton Brings Modern Manufacturing to Life at Hannover

March 2015

Eaton Brings Modern Manufacturing to Life at Hannover

Power Management - Power Control - Distribution Boards - Power Quality
Eaton Industrial Building

Power management company Eaton is showcasing its vision for how modern manufacturers can be more profitable through next generation manufacturing at the Hannover Messe. The exhibition takes place from 13 to 17 April in Hannover, Germany, where Eaton’s stand will reflect the layout of a modern industrial unit, with fully working machines. Visitors to stand C63/69 in Hall 11 will have the opportunity to experience how Eaton can help them design and build best in class machines, reduce time to market and become more profitable. At the same time, they can learn about innovative building infrastructure solutions and how to maximise the safety of people and property.

A working model of a large filter system, used for example in the wood or textile industry, will be on the stand to demonstrate how manufacturers can comply with the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive. In particular, Eaton’s variable speed starter now offers a cost-effective, easy-to-use and compact alternative, which visitors to the booth can evaluate.

A fully networked industrial future requires information from all the devices embedded in a machine or system. By turning components into smart devices using SmartWire-DT technology, Eaton is uniquely positioned to provide a high level of data transparency that is already built into the system by design. This comprises components within the cabinet as well as sensors and actuators or hydraulic valves outside the control panel. This is an important prerequisite for enabling users to get ready for Industry 4.0. In Hannover, visitors can experience the benefits of this concept based on a working pasta machine.

Energy efficiency, regulations and safety are also key concerns from an infrastructure perspective. Stringent legislation makes the safety of people and property an important focus for building owners and managers. At the same time, reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions with solutions like LED lighting, in particular, is a key consideration for many facilities managers. From mains and emergency lighting, to medium and low voltage power distribution, critical power management, fire detection and access control, Eaton has the knowledge, expertise and products to help compliance with regulations and create an environment to keep businesses running safe and strong.

To enable machine and system builders to further develop their competitive edge and realise more profit, Eaton has established a Value Added Services team. Its goal is to develop customised solutions for complex manufacturing and supply chain challenges. The new services that will be launched at the exhibition range from individual packaging, distribution and tracking concepts, through to the pre-assembly of components and systems, to customised software configurators.

While showcasing these different aspects of its portfolio in the Industrial Automation area of the exhibition, Eaton’s Hydraulics segment is also participating in the Motion, Drive & Automation section of the fair in Hall 21, stand F03. Here, Eaton is presenting its latest hydraulics and filtration innovations that focus on machine diagnostics and condition monitoring as well as increasing energy efficiency and reducing production costs.
