Featured FEMP Tools and Training

Did you know that FEMP offers a range of free on-demand training sessions and tools, including software, data sets, and databases, to support federal agencies’ energy reduction efforts? Each month, FEMP will spotlight a few of these resources that are available to all.

  • Investment Grade Audit Tool:  Download this tool used by energy service companies during the energy savings performance contract ENABLE process.
  • Using Metered Data to Improve Energy and Water Efficiency: Federal buildings are required to be metered; this often leaves agencies with a significant amount of collected data and uncertainty about the best way to utilize it. This training focuses on how to analyze meter-collected data for facility and system-wide decision-making support.

Access FEMP’s Training Search and full catalog of tools.
