Hosting NewsAtlanta, GA – Saving energy in data centers is critical in the face of rapidly growing information technology demands and the need to save costs for data center owners. To address this issue the US Department of Energy (DOE) through its Save Energy Now program is developing several training certificate programs for data center end users that will focus on data center energy efficiency. One of the first classes to be offered has been announced and is scheduled for October 21st in Atlanta, Georgia at Georgia Tech’s Global Learning and Conference Center.

Save Energy Now aims to reduce energy use in U.S. data centers 10% by 2011, building on the successful program in the manufacturing sector. To meet this ambitious goal, Save Energy Now is actively targeting energy savings potential in four main data center areas: power conversion & distribution, server load, computing operations, cooling equipment and alternative power generation.

The growing cooling demand for data centers is creating a large power demand and this new one day course will help data center professionals receive the latest information and opportunities to save costs and become energy efficient.

The one day DOE class will be hosted by DCJ Education, a sister company of the Data Center Journal. The one day course will be included with DCJ Education’s two training programs (Data Center Infrastructure Awareness and Data Center Infrastructure Specialist) that will be offered during the week of October 19th through the 23rd.
