Energy Efficiency in Federal Facilities: Update on Funding and Potential Savings

Energy Efficiency in Federal Facilities: Update on Funding and Potential Savings

Date: May 1994
Creator: United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.
Description: There are two longstanding constraints to implementing more energy efficient practices: 1) a shortage of finds to invest in efficient equipment; and 2) a lack of information for program planning and budgeting about the extent of investment opportunities and about the best finding mechanisms. This paper reviews advances made in addressing these constraints since 1991.

Renewable Energy Programs and the Farm Bill: Status and Issues

Date: September 7, 2011
Creator: Schnepf, Randy
Description: This report focuses on those policies contained in the 2008 farm bill (the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008; P.L. 110-246) that support agriculture-based renewable energy, especially biofuels. The introductory sections briefly describe how these policies evolved and how they fit into the larger context of U.S. biofuels policy. Then, the policies specific to the 2008 farm bill are defined in terms of their function, goals, administration, funding, and implementation status. Finally, a section reviews the major emerging issues related to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) energy programs, particularly as related to their possible inclusion in the next farm bill.
