EERE Communication Standards & Guidelines

EERE Office, Subprogram, and Specialty Logos

The following logos are the only logos approved for use. When used, they must be visually subordinate to the EERE Identifier. The Identity and Design Guidelines outline the approval process for new logos and define branding categories and EERE identifier requirements.

Before developing a new logo, you must first get approval from the EERE Publication Manager. If you need logos in a format that's not available here, please contact the Communication Standards Webmaster.

The following are the approved EERE logos:
