Dear Members and Guests of the Critical Facilities Roundtable,

Please accept this invitation to attend our next CFRT Quarterly Membership meeting at EPRI in Palo Alto. 

We will look at new Title 24 Energy regulations now being implemented in California for the first time and get feedback from designers and operators about the benefits and the challenges that come along with it.  And we will look at the latest economizer solutions developed to accommodate the rules.

We will also look closely at a case study prepared by Fidelity Investments where a scaled deployment of independent data center modules has proven to be the best option for their roll out of new technology in 2015.

We will catch up on Federal Government Data Center Programs with LBNL and hear about local Data Center Utility Energy Efficiency Programs from Pacific Gas & Electric.

This conference is available at no charge to you, compliments of out host and sponsors.  You may RSVP if you are in possession of this invitation and by replying to this email with the contact information (Name, Company, Title, City, State, Phone and Email) of your attendees.
