Center of Expertise for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers
The Department of Energy-led Center of Expertise for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers (CoE) demonstrates national leadership in decreasing the energy use of data centers. Through the supply of technical support, tools, best practices, analyses, and the introduction of technologies, CoE assists federal agencies and other organizations implement data center energy efficiency projects. The CoE, located at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, partners with key public and private stakeholders to further efficiency efforts.
There are over 34 data center partners reducing energy use through the Better Buildings Challenge or Data Center Accelerator. Partners increase data center energy efficiency and share the results. DOE provides support and recognition.
The data center industry and DOE partnered to develop the DCEP training program that certifies energy practitioners qualified to evaluate the energy status and efficiency opportunities in data centers. Course content was updated June 2016.
