The day and a half workshop on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 will focus on how the Energy Policy Act of 2005 will affect Federal facilities and how to comply with its requirements. It will cover the statutory requirements for energy efficiency improvements in existing and new Federal facilities, including tax credits for commercial buildings, renewable energy systems, and possible applications for federal project development. It will also work to identify the technical and programmatic aides available to Federal and private sector facility and energy managers.
The facilitators for the workshop are: Beth Shearer, President of Beth Shearer and Associates, Inc. and former Director of the Department of Energy's Office of Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP); Millard Carr, President of Energy Management Solutions, Inc. and former Director of Energy and Engineering in the Office of the Secretary; and Steve Sain, President of Sain Engineering Associates, Inc.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was signed into law by President Bush on August 8, 2005. It extends previous Congressional direction to Federal facility managers, and calls for energy efficiency improvements in existing and new facilities, increased use of renewable energy sources, and advanced utility management.
