Energy Use Analysis for the Federal Energy Management Program
MetadataShow full item record
Recent congressional legislation allows federal agencies new authorities to contract for energy savings by sharing the acquired savings with an energy service company. As part of its charter to make the federal government more energy-efficient, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) endeavors to improve the technical basis for such performance-based contracting. Specific tasks include the development of improved energy use baselining methods, refinement of a simplified energy analysis method and support to users, preparation of guidelines and procedures for energy savings initiatives, and publication of a manual to guide identification and analysis of energy conservation measures. This paper describes the current status and planned progress in each of these areas, and how these relate to several planned shared savings projects.
