Governing.com is offering a free webinar entitled “Greener Government: Energy Efficiency in Government IT Infrastructure” on March 16, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The federal government has taken a leadership role in improving energy efficiency in government IT infrastructure. State and local government executives and managers can profit from federal experience in setting policy and mandates as well as best practices in both management and technology. By updating IT facilities and systems to maximize energy efficiency states and localities can reap the benefits, such as improved environmental performance and significant cost-savings. System overhauls are expensive and time-consuming, but similar enterprise-wide results can be achieved through simple and direct changes, such as completing a comprehensive efficiency assessment, utilizing modern technology solutions and implementing innovative best practices.
Join GOVERNING on Wednesday, March 16 at 2 p.m. ET for a live, interactive webinar on this vital topic. Participants will learn…
- Which simple steps can immediately reduce energy consumption, in many cases reducing data center electricity bills by 20 – 50 %
- Ways to improve existing architecture through small changes without undergoing a system overhaul
- How best practices on the federal level can be applied in innovative ways to states and localities
