FEMP Seeks Technical Assistance Projects for FY 2005

July 28, 2004

FEMP provides technical assistance, financing assistance, education, and outreach to federal agencies meeting energy efficiency and renewable energy goals set by Executive Order 13123, the Presidential directive on "Energy Conservation at Federal Facilities," and the National Energy Policy.

FEMP would like to hear from federal agencies that require technical assistance in the following areas:

  • Sustainable New Building Design;
  • Energy and Water Efficiency Retrofits;
  • Distributed Generation (DG)/Combined Heat and Power (CHP) projects contributing to energy security and reliability;
  • Renewable Energy; and
  • Operations and Maintenance.

Technical assistance includes screening for project opportunities, performing feasibility studies, reviewing procurement specifications (including those for A&E services), design review, evaluation of completed projects, and conducting sustainable facility workshops. This Call for Projects is for technical assistance only and cannot be used for funding of hardware or buy down of financed projects. Funding for successful applicants will not be transferred to agencies, rather the assistance will be provided directly by DOE national laboratories and contractors selected from the best energy and sustainability consultants in the country.

If you are interested in requesting technical assistance from FEMP, please complete and submit the by close of business July 16, 2004. Applications received after July 16 will not be accepted. Agencies that participated in the FY 2003 Call for Projects are encouraged to reapply.
