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.
FEMP is currently finalizing the 2020 Federal Energy and Water Management Awards and exploring options and platforms to recognize, honor, and showcase the selected winners in the current virtual working environment. Upon completion of the final approval process, FEMP will plan a special public announcement identifying the 2020 award winners.
Award Winning Champions Shared Lessons Learned Forum
In 2018, FEMP hosted the first Award Winning Champions Shared Lessons Learned Forum in conjunction with its annual Federal Energy and Water Management Awards ceremony.
This informal forum was organized specifically for the award winners to share their award winning program or project’s best practices, successes, barriers, recommendations, and lessons learned and to network. FEMP staff guided and documented these discussions and developed lessons learned summaries, which are featured on the 2018 Award Winning Champions Shared Lessons Learned Forum.
