Require every federal data center be assigned a certified Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP). DOE has identified this as a data center best practice in its 2011 Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP). Currently, very few federal data centers have active energy efficiency policies and practices in place. Assigning a DCEP to each data center would greatly assist the Facilities & IT orgs in the identification and imlementation of data center energy efficiency best practices.
