The Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP) Distributed Energy and Energy Procurement initiative helps federal agencies accomplish their missions through investment in lasting and reliable energy-generation projects and purchases.

For more than 30 years, FEMP has helped federal agencies with renewable energy projects. FEMP continues to support agencies with identifying and implementing distributed energy projects, including on-site renewable energy, storage, and combined heat and power technologies utilizing all available on-site project financing options.

FEMP also supports federal agencies with energy procurement, specifically off-site renewable energy purchases.

FEMP provides resources and assistance to federal agencies based on current federal laws and requirements, agency needs and missions, and government best practices.
