February 22, 2011 -- Last year, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative issued guidelines for many agencies to reduce energy consumption. The Office of Management and Budget Environmental Stewardship Scorecard also focuses on the energy mandate.

Taking a close look at energy costs may be a great avenue to cut spending. This week, Federal Tech Talk sits down with Nick Milne-Home and Jerry Rutkowski from 1E. Their company takes a look at systems to help reduce energy costs.
