We've been holding monthly webinars on behalf of the EPA to describe how to design and manage utility energy efficiency programs for the data center market, and our next session is coming up after Thanksgiving on December 5th (register here).
The one-hour webinar is a great way to get acclimated to the fifteen-page guide that the EPA has published on the subject.
We are working on an update to the guide to cover new construction program opportunities as well as providing an update on program planning for the server room and small data center market. Utilities on the west coast are actively studying this market with an eye towards debuting programs in 2014.
Also note at the registration site that the EPA has two other webinar series that would be of interest to data center and IT managers; one on desktop power management and the other on data center energy efficiency opportunities.
