Emergency power supply
If the external power supply is interrupted, the building's emergency power supply is activated. In addition, the emergency power supplied by LuxEnergie directly feeds into the customer's electrical grid. For complexes consisting of several buildings, power is supplied via an underground network.
The type of power generation plant used depends on the existing infrastructure. Customers currently have a choice of two options:
- One or more diesel generators can be installed in order to generate emergency power on demand.
- Where a cogeneration plant is in operation, this can also be used to generate an alternative power supply. Cogeneration plants are operational all year round, therefore the standby costs and the need for regular testing that exist with traditional generators no longer apply.
