FEMP Issues 2019 Federal Agency Call for Projects

On July 22, 2019, FEMP issued a Federal Agency Call (FAC) titled "Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) 2019" (DE-FOA-0002143). The AFFECT 2019 FAC will provide direct funding to U.S. federal agencies for applications that (1) promote the use of external, leveraged funding to advance energy affordability and resilience; (2) integrate technologies that advance the resilience and mission critical functionality of a site that are not part of a leveraged project; and (3) support the deployment of an integrated energy management system that allows for standardized and streamlined practices that save energy and promote the safety, health and operations of facilities. To apply to AFFECT 2019, applicants must register with and submit application materials through EERE Exchange. Visit FEMP's website for more information, and send questions regarding this FAC to AFFECT2019@ee.doe.gov.

Mark Your Calendar for the Fall FUPWG Seminar

The Fall Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) Seminar will be hosted by FEMP and the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) on November 7-8, 2019 in Washington, D.C. The FUPWG seminar is held twice per year to share best practices, success stories, case studies, information about FEMP activities and other business. Continuing Education Units will again be offered for the benefit of professional stakeholders that hold licenses and certifications that require continuing education. The agenda will be posted and registration will open in early September; check the seminar webpage for more information. The event will be held at EEI headquarters, and attendees are encouraged to secure hotel reservations as soon as possible since no room block is associated with this event. 

FEMP Releases FY 2018 Annual Energy Performance Data  

FEMP recently released the FY 2018 annual energy data set and Federal Government and agency performance data tables to coincide with the release of the Office of Management and Budget's Scorecards for Efficient Federal Operations/Management and agency performance graphics by the Council on Environmental Quality' Office of Federal Sustainability. Visit FEMP’s Federal Comprehensive Annual Energy Performance Data website to view and download publicly available data tables of federal agency energy and water consumption, along with information on energy costs by end-use sector, efficiency investment, and progress toward key energy management goals. Data on this website are compiled from federal agencies' latest Annual Energy Management Data Reports.

TECO Energy Federal/Utility Partnership Meeting Rescheduled

TECO Energy and FEMP are helping federal agencies improve facility operations, upgrade infrastructure, improve resilience, and save taxpayer dollars by offering partnership opportunities through utility energy service contracts (UESCs). A UESC is a limited-source contract between a federal agency and serving utility for energy management services. UESCs are ideal for any size project. FEMP encourages all federal entities in the TECO Energy service territory to attend this important training and partnering opportunity, now scheduled for October 22, 2019 in Tampa, Florida. The UESC training will be conducted by FEMP representatives. Visit the registration site for details.
