Belgian data centers may start investing in UPS and other electrical backup

It has been all over the news in the more serious technical magazines and papers here, there is a report that says that next year we will have more power outages and difficulties and that the situation may worsen year after year. The reason : we don't produce enough electricity ourselves and so we will have outages.

This means that if you have a datacenter or critical infrastructure the backup batteries (UPS) and failover strategies (providers) and own electricity production becomes an important aspect of your business continuity plan.

Some numbers from 2005 show that Belgium is quite dependent on import of electricity (and other energy resources) http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/world/country/cntry_BE.html
