The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) encourages agencies and organizations to improve data center energy efficiency in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget's Smart Cloud Strategy and M-16-19 Memorandum.

Data centers offer a tremendous opportunity for energy and cost savings.

FEMP helps agencies construct and maintain energy-efficient data centers by providing resources through its Center of Expertise (CoE) for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers and encouraging participation in the Better Buildings Challenge and Data Center Accelerator.
