Renewable Energy Resources and Technologies
This section explores renewable energy technologies and resources with a special focus on Federal application opportunities. Each page contains a brief overview of the resource along with resource links for in-depth information and research.
It is important to note that the Energy Policy Act of 2005 defines renewable energy as "electric energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas, ocean (including tidal, wave, current, and thermal), geothermal, municipal solid waste, or new hydroelectric generation capacity achieved from increased efficiency or additions of new capacity at an existing hydroelectric project."
The following renewable energy resources are covered:
Resource maps and screening tools are available to determine the availability of renewable resources across the U.S. The project planning section helps Federal agencies determine the best process for developing on-site renewable energy systems. The Guide to Integrating Renewable Energy in Federal Construction also helps Federal agencies plan and implement renewable energy.
Federal agencies can contact FEMP to help perform assessment screening and formulate project plans.
FEMP offers regular training on renewable energy resources and technologies. The FEMP events calendar lists current training opportunities. For additional opportunities or information, contact Anne Crawley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-586-1505.
