The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides federal agencies with resources for reporting annual progress made toward efficiency mandates.

Section 548(a) of National Energy Conservation Policy Act (NEPCA) (42 U.S.C. 8258(a)) requires federal agencies to submit to the U.S. Department of Energy an annual report that describes activities to meet the energy management requirements of Section 543 of NECPA (42 U.S.C. 8253).

NOTE: No major changes to annual reporting requirements are expected at this time. New policy could necessitate collection of additional data or changes to reporting, but at this point, it has not been determined what that might be or the timeline. The final version of the Annual Energy Management Data Report workbook will be posted here along with the companion FY 2021 Annual Energy Reporting Guidance template and associated attachments when approved the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). In the meantime, the DRAFT Annual Energy Management Data Report, Version 12-1 and DRAFT FY 2021 Annual Energy Reporting Guidance can be used to begin data collection across your agencies.

Email Chris Tremper to obtain the draft data report workbook and reporting guidance.

Due Date

The Annual Energy Management Data Report workbook for FY 2021 and associated narrative information was due on January 31, 2022.

Annual Energy Management Data Report Workbook for FY 2021 Reporting

Top-tier federal departments and agencies must use FEMP's Annual Energy Management Data Report workbook for comprehensive reporting of fiscal year (FY) 2021 energy, costs, square footage, and associated operational data.

Annual Energy Report Narrative and Associated Guidance

Additional narrative information is required from top-tier federal departments and agencies for their annual energy management activities that is not captured in the data report workbook. Agencies should refer to the Reporting Guidance for Federal Agency Annual Report on Energy Management for submitting the required narrative information for their annual energy reports.

The Reporting Guidance includes three attachments:

  • Guidance for Receiving Credit on Energy Performance Goal for Projects that Save Source Energy but Increase Site-Delivered Energy
  • Guidance to Receive Credit on Energy Performance Goal to Normalize for Weather in Benchmarked Buildings
  • Guidance to Receive Credit on Energy Performance Goal for Energy Intensity Improvements in Goal-Excluded Buildings.

For related information, see Guidelines Establishing Criteria for Excluding Buildings from the Energy Performance Requirements of Section 543 of NECPA.

Corrections to Prior Years' Data

Corrections to FY 2008 through FY 2020 data must be submitted in the appropriate prior-year data report.

If you plan to revise prior years' data, be sure to request from FEMP the data reports of record for your agency.
