The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 included funding for FEMP to further its mission of facilitating the Federal Government's implementation of sound, cost-effective energy management and investment practices to enhance the nation's energy security and environmental stewardship. FEMP completed nearly 120 technical assistance projects through this effort.
FEMP national laboratory teams and contractor service providers visited more than 80 Federal sites located throughout the U.S. The site visits are a key component of FEMP Recovery Act funded technical assistance activity, which provides more than $13.2 million in funding for direct technical assistance to energy managers across the Federal Government. This service will help agencies accelerate their Recovery Act projects and make internal management decisions for investment in energy efficiency and deployment of renewable energy.
The wide variety of expertise within FEMP's national laboratory and contractor teams gives technical assistance activity a broad impact across the Federal Government. The Federal Government could save an estimated $46 million and nearly 4 trillion British thermal units (Btu) if agencies were to implement all recommended renewable energy projects and energy and water efficiency measures. That's enough to power Alaska for two days.
