Office of EERE
Director, Federal Energy Management Program
Tim Unruh is the Director of the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE).
As FEMP Director, he oversees the implementation of policy and actions that result in energy efficiency implementation, renewable energy adoption, and reduction in energy and water use in federal government operations. He was instrumental in guiding DOE through a streamlining of the Super ESPC contractor selection process. He is working to harmonize the FEMP program with the other research programs within EERE, where he believes that FEMP can become a strategic deployment program for developed technologies. This deployment in federal facilities will provide the leadership in energy efficiency that will encourage the private sector to also adopt the technology and increase awareness of its potential.
Formerly, he was Director of Operations for ConEdison Solutions, where he led a team of engineers and project managers to implement energy savings projects in government and private installations. While in this role, he worked to educate energy users on alternative finance methods to achieve energy reduction goals. He was heavily involved in the measurement and verification of energy savings resulting from these projects.
He has Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas.
