Energy Action Month
Energy Action Month 2012
Print, display, and distribute these materials during Energy Action Month.
Building on the President's Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future, DOE went beyond energy awareness to spur action to save energy, water, and money for American taxpayers. To encourage this call to action, DOE requested the current Energy Awareness Month to
rename to National Energy Action Month. As a result, President Barack Obama declared October Energy Action Month.
Energy Action Month supported by FEMP work on institutional and behavior change. A group of social scientists leading this work are developing guidance, resources, and tools to support agencies in implementing their Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans and transitioning energy awareness campaigns to action.
As such, FEMP offers materials and ideas to promote energy-saving practices at Federal facilities. These materials, such as posters, carry a central theme, and other energy outreach messages.
Outreach Materials and Resources
Energy Action Month outreach materials and resources remind Federal employees to switch off unnecessary lights and equipment; use efficient FEMP-designated, ENERGY STAR®-qualified, and WaterSense-labeled products; and drive fuel-efficient vehicles. Outreach materials.
Special project items will also be sent to select recipients, highlighting Federal projects and employees that take extraordinary actions to save energy, money, and resources. Federal agencies participating in You Have the Power campaigns receive these materials.
Current and past campaign materials are available for download.
