ASmart Solutions for Federal A Acquisition Support
The Federal government-the single largest
energy consumer in the United States-has a clear
responsibility to lead the nation by example toward
greater energy efficiency. The Department of Energy's
Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) plays
a prominent role in this effort with a mandate to help
Federal agencies implement smart energy management
solutions that reduce the cost and environmental impact
of the Federal government.
Established in 1973, FEMP works with facility managers,
engineers, architects, contract specialists, utilities, and
energy service companies to save energy at Federal
sites. FEMP services promote energy efficiency, water
conservation, alternative fuels, and the use of distributed
and renewable energy. Specifically, FEMP helps
* Reduce energy use and associated costs
* Comply with Federal energy regulations
* Finance projects
* Integrate renewable energy technologies
* Build, operate, and maintain high-performance
buildings, laboratories, and data centers
* Purchase energy-efficient products
* Manage Federal vehicle fleets.
FEMP's leadership in these areas, combined with
the work of Federal agency energy champions, has
decreased Federal building-related energy usage per
square foot by more than 25% since 1985.
Energy-related projects, whether
large or small, require money to
implement. FEMP can help
agencies access funds and
ensure that project dollars are
spent wisely. FEMP provides
assistance on project financing
mechanisms such as Energy
Savings Performance Contracts
(ESPCs), which allow agencies
to partner with energy service
companies (ESCOs) to accom-
plish energy projects for Federal
facilities. ESPCs require no
officials to utilize ESF
end Super ESPCs to m

FEMP offers expert assistance including project facilitation,
assistance with contracting, and technical support for entering
into ESPCs and other financing mechanisms such as:
" Super Energy Savings Performance Contracts
(Super ESPCs)-Super ESPCs are indefinite-delivery,
indefinite-quantity contracts that streamline and expedite
the ESPC process.
" Utility Energy Services Contracts (UESCs)-UESCs
are energy service contracts that Federal agencies enter
into with their local utilities. Electric and gas utilities
throughout the country have provided more than $2 billion
in project financing to date for energy and water efficiency
projects at Federal agencies.
- Energy Efficiency Incentive Programs-FEMP provides
up-to-date, state-by-state information about energy
efficiency and load management programs offered by local
utilities and other state agencies.
For more than 35 years, Federal agencies have relied on
FEMP's technical assistance and policy efforts to meet
requirements to save energy and taxpayer dollars. Bringing
advanced energy technologies to Federal facilities lies at the
heart of FEMP's mission. No matter what the scale of your
project or which technologies you select, FEMP can assist
you throughout the planning, evaluation, and design phases.
FEMP provides technical assistance, training, and informa-
tion on a variety of topics, including:
- New Technologies and Technology Transfer
" Renewable Energy Technologies
" Sustainable Building Design
- Energy-Efficient Product Procurement
- Operations and Maintenance.
FEMP provides guidance and expertise to help agencies
comply with the range of Federal energy legislation and
- Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007
" Executive Order 13423, Strengthening Federal
Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management
" Energy Policy Act of 2005
" Energy Policy Act of 1992.
For many agencies, complying with energy policy requires a
significant effort and long-term commitment. For example,
Executive Order 13423 requires Federal agencies to reduce
energy use by 3% annually over a 10-year period through
2015. FEMP's effective policy coordination and guidance
helps agencies meet this and other requirements. As part of
this effort, FEMP provides information on current require-
ments, agency reporting, guidance documents, and many
Outreach and Coordination
FEMP promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy, fleet
efficiency, and water-saving strategies through a wide variety
of publications, on-line resources, and workshops. FEMP
reports agencies' energy management progress annually,
coordinates interagency working groups, and manages awards
programs to recognize exemplary energy leadership.
