FEMP First Thursday Seminar

FEMP First Thursday Seminars provide training for Federal energy and environmental professionals. Leading experts address timely topics in 90-minute sessions, offered live via satellite or through streaming video at your desktop.

Register now to learn about ways to implement performance-based contracts that achieve high-performance buildings with low energy profiles. Learn about upfront contract provisions that lead to measurable performance benchmarks in building construction and operations.

Discover techniques that result in:

  • Innovation by design teams and contractors to incorporate energy efficiency as part of the design/construction process
  • Minimal additional cost to achieve significant energy savings (in the range of 50% reduction)
  • Owners who are focused on project management, rather than solving design/construction problems
  • Strong communications between owners, design teams, and contractors
  • Best practices, examples, and lessons learned from real experiences in implementing this process.

FEMP CEUs awarded upon successful completion of a multiple choice assessment.

  • Fundamentals of Life Cycle Costing for Energy Conservation

    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.

  • Advanced HVAC in High-Tech Buildings - Data Centers

    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.
