The 70th Texas Legislature transferred the Energy Efficiency Division of the Public Utility Commission to the Governor's Office in September 1987 and directed the Governor's Energy Management Center (GEMC) to perform energy management services for state agencies and universities. The major new tasks include revision of the State Building Standards for Energy Efficient Construction, the possible establishment of a revolving loan financing mechanism using oil overcharge funds for energy retrofits in state buildings, and direct engineering and technical assistance to agencies on topics ranging from cogeneration to utility billing analysis. This paper describes those services and outlines how agency energy managers and consulting engineering firms are helping reduce the state's $200 million annual utility bill.
