The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) sponsors the annual Federal Energy and Water Management Awards to recognize individuals and organizations for significant contributions to energy and water efficiency within the federal government.

FEMP intends to distinguish federal employees who developed and implemented exemplary, cost-effective projects and programs that cut energy waste and advance America’s progress toward energy independence, resilience, and security, while also advancing federal agency missions.

The Federal Energy and Water Management Awards honor outstanding achievements in:

  • Energy and water efficiency and conservation
  • Distributed energy generation
  • Fleet and transportation management.
