DOE Webcast March 1: Achieving Energy Efficient Data Centers with New ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines
February 16, 2012
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will present a live webcast titled Achieving Energy Efficient Data Centers with New ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines on Thursday, March 1, 2012. The webcast will take place from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The session will benefit professionals interested in operating data centers at wider environmental ranges and greater efficiencies to reduce energy, capital, and maintenance costs.
Experts Don Beaty of DLB Associates Consulting Engineers and Will Lintner of FEMP will offer training on how to improve energy performance in federal data centers and research facilities.
Specifically, the instructors will provide training on:
- The latest ASHRAE TC9.9 guidance on allowable and recommended temperature and humidity ranges
- The impact of higher temperatures on IT equipment
- The increased potential to design data centers that don't rely on mechanical refrigeration such as chillers and compressors.
Participants are encouraged to email or call in their questions before and during the program to receive tailored advice from the experts during the live "Q&A" segment. Questions submitted before the webcast can be sent to FTS@energyworkshops.org.
The 90-minute webcast is free of charge, but advanced registration is required to obtain an Internet URL for the presentation.
