Improve Energy Performance, Reduce Costs, Meet Goals

Learn more from FEMP's EMIS Technical Resources Report.

The Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP) Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) initiative helps federal agencies identify and implement an EMIS to help meet their building energy cost reduction goals and comply with federal facility energy efficiency laws and requirements, including the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, Executive Order 13800, and the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) of 2014.

An EMIS is comprised of devices, data services, and software applications that monitor, analyze, and control metered building energy use and system performance.

Elements of an EMIS work together to aggregate facility data and help federal energy managers optimize energy use at the building, campus, or agency level.

To help agencies successfully implement an EMIS and meet federal requirements, FEMP provides a variety of research materials and resources, along with recommendations for successful EMIS use.
