A report to Congress on a role for federal purchasing in commercializing new energy-efficient and renewable-energy technologies

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of this study is to satisfy the requirements of Section 152 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 92), which directs the Secretary of Energy to ``evaluate the potential use of the purchasing power of the Federal government to promote the development and commercialization of energy efficient products`` (US Congress 1992). Here, purchasing power implies a market presence by the Federal government that is large enough to influence decisions by manufacturers and suppliers about new-product introduction. In recent years, as energy use has become more efficient in the United States in both the public and private sectors, ... continued below

Description

The purpose of this study is to satisfy the requirements of Section 152 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 92), which directs the Secretary of Energy to ``evaluate the potential use of the purchasing power of the Federal government to promote the development and commercialization of energy efficient products`` (US Congress 1992). Here, purchasing power implies a market presence by the Federal government that is large enough to influence decisions by manufacturers and suppliers about new-product introduction. In recent years, as energy use has become more efficient in the United States in both the public and private sectors, a major contributor to this transition has been the development of innovative technologies and products that reduce the use of energy and/or that use renewable forms of energy. Although the Nation`s efforts toward greater efficiency have been impressive, there are still many opportunities for the widespread introduction of even more energy-saving innovations. This report outlines the actions that DOE can take, in partnership with other Federal agencies, to address the barriers and realize the opportunities from commercializing new technologies.
