Learn how to plan, implement, analyse and formulate recommendations through an effective Energy Efficiency Plan to ultimately reduce energy use and carbon emissions.
Combined with ever-rising wholesale energy prices and legislation that penalises those using excessive amounts of electricity and the impact of carbon emissions; energy and more importantly, energy efficiency, is now an issue that is foremost in the minds of those operating within the Data Centre space.
The Certified Data Centre Energy Professional (CDCEP®) program teaches expertise in Energy Efficiency and provides the tools to make a significant contribution to the energy strategy and effectively deal with, and manage, energy related issues and Energy Efficiency.
Students will learn how to strategically plan, design and implement an Energy Plan for Data Centre facilities, focussing on energy efficiency. They will be introduced to current energy profiler tools and models to analyse site data and formulate a comprehensive Action Plan to implement real energy savings potential and capacity reclamation.
The use and distribution of power will be explored considering computer systems, servers, networking and other IT equipment and how usage can quickly spiral out of control when not being measured, monitored and maintained correctly. In addition the use of redundant and back-up power infrastructure will be analysed considering the power utilisation for air-conditioning, fire suppression, security, alarms and other supporting systems. These types of high power, high density equipment all placing additional burden on the power supplied
and cooling systems.
The CDCEP® program content is continually updated to reflect the key industry Energy Efficiency developments and takes into account the requirements of the latest version of the EU Code of Conduct in Data Centres and the US DoE Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP).
This program is a must for all Data Centre Managers, Operations Managers, Facilities Managers, IT & Network
Managers and supporting departments responsible for improving the Energy Efficiency of all the Data Centre
environments whilst meeting regulatory demands.
