EERE's Federal Energy Management Program issued a new resource that provides best practices and helpful guidance for federal agencies developing large-scale renewable energy projects. The resource, Large-Scale Renewable Energy Guide: Developing Renewable Energy Projects Larger than 10 MWs at Federal Facilities, provides a comprehensive framework that includes active project management strategies, common terms, and principles that reduce project uncertainties and promote partnerships among the federal government, private developers, and financiers. Improved coordination on large-scale renewable energy projects will help ensure successful projects while diversifying America’s energy supply, creating jobs, and advancing national goals for energy security.

The guide describes the fundamentals of deploying financially attractive, large-scale renewable energy projects and provides common terms and explanations to improve communication between government agencies and private developers as they navigate the project development and execution process. It also offers best practices to help federal agencies mitigate risks and demonstrate strong project characteristics for large-scale renewable energy installations.

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) works with key individuals to accomplish energy change within organizations by bringing expertise from all levels of project and policy implementation to enable federal agencies to meet energy related goals and to provide energy leadership to the country.

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) success stories highlight the positive impact of its work with businesses, industry partners, universities, research labs, and other entities.
