Energy Intensity Reduction Progress since 1975

Energy consumed in federal government facilities has been generally declining over the past four decades. This reduction stems from the total square footage occupied by the federal government, which has continued to fall since its peak in fiscal year (FY) 1987, and from the energy consumed per square foot inside federal buildings, which has been declining since FY 1975.

Several energy efficiency goals currently affecting energy consumption in the federal government were established by the National Energy Conservation Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 8253-8258), and associated executive orders.
