Resources for Implementing Federal Utility Energy Service Contracts

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) offers resources to help federal agencies implement utility energy service contracts (UESCs). UESC case studies are also available.

Virtual Center of Expertise

The UESC Virtual Center of Expertise helps federal agencies and utilities significantly streamline the UESC implementation process and access the resources and expertise needed to overcome project barriers. The center provides project teams with FEMP points of contact and maintains a list of agency, utility, and financing experts willing to assist their peers with project implementation based on their own experiences. It also offers sample documents and templates necessary for UESC implementation.

FEMP maintains a list of volunteer contacts from agencies and utilities who serve as references to UESC inquiries. These points of contacts are available to provide support for contracts, technical services, and regulations in UESC project implementation.

Contact Kaila Raybuck to be directed to a UESC Virtual Center of Expertise point of contact.



FEMP offers an ongoing series of workshops and webinars to train federal agencies on how to implement UESCs. Visit the FEMP Training Search for upcoming opportunities.
