Renewable Energy Deployment in the Federal Sector

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

To reduce energy costs and help protect the environment, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) assists Federal agencies in becoming more energy efficient and using more renewable energy. FEMP's renewable energy program has identified three technology pathways to this goal: (1) purchasing and installing cost-effective renewable energy technologies at Federal sites; (2) purchasing a portion of Federal facilities' electricity from renewable power sources; and (3) incorporating the principles of low-energy design in new construction. To support these pathways, FEMP has also identified three overarching actions that need to be taken: (1) partnering with others to ... continued below

To reduce energy costs and help protect the environment, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) assists Federal agencies in becoming more energy efficient and using more renewable energy. FEMP's renewable energy program has identified three technology pathways to this goal: (1) purchasing and installing cost-effective renewable energy technologies at Federal sites; (2) purchasing a portion of Federal facilities' electricity from renewable power sources; and (3) incorporating the principles of low-energy design in new construction. To support these pathways, FEMP has also identified three overarching actions that need to be taken: (1) partnering with others to develop clear messages about renewable energy that resonate with the public; (2) coordinating agency programs to leverage resources and emphasize renewables; and (3) securing commitments and support from Federal leadership. This paper describes FEMP's progress in each pathway and supporting action and includes examples of recent Federal projects.
