Federal Renewable Energy Project Planning and Implementation

You are here

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides federal agencies with information about planning and implementing renewable energy projects. Whether integrated into existing buildings or part of new construction, renewable energy projects help agencies meet federal laws and requirements, including the Executive Order 13693 30% by 2025 goal.

The following FEMP guides help agencies plan and implement renewable energy in major construction projects or add large (utility) scale or small to medium (distributed) scale renewable energy projects to existing buildings and facilities. Information about identifying projects and how FEMP uses REopt to screen federal project opportunities is also available.
