Federal Utility Partnership Working Group

The Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) establishes partnerships and facilitates communications among federal agencies, utilities, and energy service companies. FUPWG develops strategies to implement cost-effective energy efficiency and water conservation projects through utility incentive programs at federal sites.

The mission and objectives of the Federal Utility Partnership Working Group are to:

  • Enhance existing or foster new partnerships between federal agencies and their servicing utilities to identify, develop, and implement cost-effective energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable energy projects at federal sites

  • Identify how utilities can help federal agencies meet energy management goals required by legislation

  • Expand the communication infrastructure between federal agencies, specific sites, and utilities regarding all aspects of federal energy management

  • Prepare agencies for upcoming changes in the electric utility industry and provide information regarding recent technological developments in the areas of energy efficiency and water conservation.
