PRESS RELEASE – for immediate release


Executive Order mandate Data Center Energy Practitioners (DCEP) be on-site


Executive Order 13693 states that all core data centers, to include existing, new and planned, shall have at least one certified Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP), either on-site or centralized, assigned to manage data center performance and continued optimization.”

The DCEP pilot program from the US DOE (2010) was designed to raise the standards of those involved in the energy assessments of data centers. It is driven by the principal that significant knowledge, training, and skills are required to perform data center energy assessments. The DCEP program was developed and implemented in close coordination with industry stakeholders to train a core group of professional energy practitioners and some data center professionals to help reduce their energy demands and accelerate energy savings within data centers.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Industrial Technologies Program awarded Bob Doherty of OMS in Your Data Center certification as a Data Center Energy Practitioners – DCEP,  as part of their pilot program to train and test 100 professionals.
