Critical & Back-up Power

Critical and backup power is something that we all take for granted. It’s an afterthought in a modern economy that’s increasingly dependent on electric power.

But conversations surrounding critical and backup power have increased over the years and has become a hot button topic within the energy community. Long-lasting outages could wreak havoc when the loads are critical to life, business, and even a comfortable lifestyle.

It is necessary for critical facilities to have a reliable source of sustained electrical power to achieve continuous operation. With the climate being extremely unpredictable in recent years and the increase in cyber-attacks on critical energy infrastructure, it’s fair to say that a well thorough plan needs to be in place to deal with power outages of all types - short-term and long term.

After all it’s not about will a failure happen, it’s when.

The Backup Generators & Critical Power sector, at Middle East Energy 2024, will help you source progressive energy solutions at the most competitive prices and explore new technologies from niche solutions providers and fresh-thinking startups at the world’s leading energy event. Find out exactly what you need to secure your critical infrastructure.
