The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides information about energy-efficient products and energy-saving technologies that can help agencies meet federal energy-efficient product purchasing requirements.
Five legal authorities require agencies to procure energy-efficient products. By procuring and properly installing energy- and water-efficient products, agencies can meet their federal efficiency program requirements, reduce energy and water consumption, and save money.
