Federal Comprehensive Annual Energy Reporting Requirements

You are here

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).

Annual Energy Management Data Report Workbook for FY 2019 Reporting

Due Date

The Annual Energy Management Data Report workbook for FY 2019 and associated narrative information are due on January 31, 2020.

Top-tier federal departments and agencies must use FEMP's Annual Energy Management Data Report workbook for comprehensive reporting of fiscal year (FY) 2019 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 must use the Reporting Guidance for Federal Agency Annual Report on Energy Management template 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 2017 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.
