The U.S. Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will present Data Center Energy Efficiency Best Practices, a new First Thursday Seminar, on April 7, 2016, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

This First Thursday Seminar will explore opportunities for data center energy efficiency, including best practices related to data center energy use intensity, key metrics and benchmarking, using IT to manage energy use, and federal requirements for data center energy use. 

Participants will learn to:

  • Comply with electronics acquisition rules
  • Establish, track, and report high-quality benchmarking and performance metrics
  • Use IT to manage IT energy, using wireless sensor networks
  • Use dashboards to share information with operators, managers, and occupants
  • Access free online tools and software to streamline complex technical decisions.

The instructor for this First Thursday Seminar is Dale Sartor, engineer on the building applications team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

After completing a course evaluation and multiple-choice assessment, participants will be eligible for continuing education units.   

First Thursday Seminars are designed for federal energy and facility managers but are open to all individuals through the FEMP Training Catalog. Courses are hosted in partnership with the National Institute of Building Sciences’ Whole Building Design Guide.

The 90-minute training is free of charge, but advanced registration is required to obtain an Internet URL for the presentation. Registration for the broadcast will close on April 6, 2016.
