Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP) Training

DOE has partnered with industry to develop a Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP) certificate training program to accelerate energy savings in the dynamic and energy-intensive marketplace of data centers.

The DCEP program was defined, designed, and implemented by working closely with industry stakeholders. Presently there are more than 300 qualified Practitioners. Significant knowledge, training, and skills are required to perform accurate energy assessments in data centers. DCEPs will:

  • Be qualified to identify and evaluate energy efficiency opportunities in data centers;
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the use of DOE's DC Pro software tool suite;
  • Address energy opportunities in electrical systems, air management, HVAC, and IT equipment;
  • Meet academic/work experience requirements (pre-qualifications);
  • Receive training on conducting data center assessments;
  • Be required to pass an exam.

Property management companies, engineering consulting firms, service companies, data center operators, state energy agencies, and utilities will benefit from the expertise provided by DCEPs.
