FEMP logo with the text, "50 Years of Federal Energy Management"

Celebrate 50 years of federal energy management with a week of engaging training, collaboration, and celebrating half a century of successes. 

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is hosting FEMP 50, a three-day celebration in Washington, D.C., from September 12–14, 2023. Join us in person or virtually for this special event where you will hear from U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and FEMP leadership on how federal energy and water management has evolved over the years and learn about its key successes and vision for the future.

Can't wait for Energy Exchange 2024 in March? Earn your training hours at FEMP 50 with session topics including:

  • Tools and resources to meet agency goals
  • Advancing federal energy and water in a changing climate
  • Decarbonization, electrification, and carbon pollution-free electricity (CFE) 
  • Building design, data, and performance 
  • Utility engagement and performance contracting for decarbonization and CFE goals
