The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has standards and guidelines for designing and displaying exhibits for conferences, trade shows, and other events.

The EERE Communications Office also manages and stores corporate exhibits, which are available for loan to other EERE offices.

Graphic Guidelines

Follow these guidelines for the application and positioning of the core graphic elements when developing a new EERE exhibit.


The U.S. Department of Energy/EERE identifier must be positioned in the upper left hand corner of the exhibit graphics (excluding endcaps). The identifier should be white reversed out of a green background. Download the identifier from the communications standards logos page.

Colors and Fonts

Follow EERE's Identity and Design Guidelines for your exhibit. The typeface for exhibits is Gotham.

Exhibit Approval 

The design of all new EERE exhibits must be approved by EERE Communications. To receive approval of a new exhibit, please send a JPEG image or PDF to Scott Minos. He will review and provide any necessary feedback to ensure conformance with the design guidelines.

Requesting Corporate Exhibits

If you want to use one of EERE's existing corporate exhibits in your event, you can request them from the EERE Communications Office.

The corporate exhibits vary in size and scalability and are used for general EERE events. EERE offices may request to use these exhibits, but they are not meant to represent any one program or technology office. Borrowers will be asked to cover any shipping or drayage costs associated with their event.

Contact Scott Minos to request the use of corporate exhibits and for help in planning your event.
