Introduction to ECAM
This training session is part of a three-part series exploring energy charting and metrics (ECAM). The first 15 minutes offers an introduction to building automation systems, ECAM, and its tools and features. The training then shifts to downloading and installing ECAM for the user. Finally, a simple pre-processing example is demonstrated to illustrate what data format is accepted by ECAM.

Learn how to utilize life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) to improve Federal economic-based decision making, determine the total cost of ownership of project alternatives, and make informed decisions on energy and water efficiency investments. In addition, participants will apply key requirements and supplemental economic measures to federal investment decisions such as those for individual and interdependent building system acquisitions for new construction and major renovations. A video tutorial will demonstrate how the latest version of the Building Life Cycle Costing (BLCC) software can turn readily available inputs into sound investment decisions.
This course covers the best known methods for reducing the energy-intensity of data centers by utilizing server-virtualization, optimizing the temperature within the data center, selecting energy-efficient cooling options, how to arrange server racks and aisles and many other efficiency opportunities. It emphasizes the need for server administrators to work with, rather than independent of facility operators.
