FEMP First Thursday Seminar

Achieving Energy-Efficient Data Centers with New ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines explores energy and HVAC control strategies, with an emphasis on reliability and best practices related to the new American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning (ASHRAE) 9.9 Data Center Class Guidelines for controlling temperature, and air volume in high-intensity data centers. The seminar included project examples demonstrating cost-effective operations and payback periods that result from an in-depth engineering approach.

First Thursday Seminars are FEMP training opportunities targeting Federal energy, environmental, and fleet professionals offered at no cost by leading experts. The training sessions are delivered live via satellite or through streaming media at your desktop.

FEMP offers interactive, online First Thursday training courses to help Federal agencies develop core competencies and comply with energy-efficiency and renewable-energy water-management and sustainability requirements. FEMP is partnering with the National Institute of Building Sciences' Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) to host these comprehensive, FEMP-developed First Thursday training courses.
