With a limited amount of incremental effort, sustainable design efforts can be paired with a good working knowledge of LEED to provide a LEED-certified critical facility environment. (Fundamental – 2 hours).


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Understand the basics of LEED and the changes from LEED v2009 to v4. 
• Understand which points within LEED sensibly lend themselves to data center design and construction. 
• Describe some data management and cooling strategies that help reduce energy consumption. 
• Describe how to reduce a data center's impact on climate change and enhance human health. 
• Understand the differences between data center construction and requirements and standard building design. 
• Become familiar with the critical systems within – and integral to = data center construction, including UPS, generators, redundancy (N+1, 2N, 2N+1, etc.).
