2822The FEMP New Technology Demonstrations Activity

The Energy Policy Act of 1992, and subsequent Executive Orders, mandated that energy consumption in federal buildings be reduced by 35% from 1985 levels by the year 2010. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 calls for even more energy reduction. To achieve this goal, the DOE Federal Energy Management Program sponsors a series of program activities to reduce energy consumption at federal installations nationwide. One of these program activities, new technology demonstrations, is tasked to accelerate the introduction of energy-efficient and renewable technologies into the federal sector and to improve the rate of technology transfer.

In addition to technology demonstrations, FEMP sponsors a series of publications that are designed to disseminate information on new and emerging technologies. These publications include:

Federal Technology Alerts—longer summary reports that provide details on energy-efficient, water-conserving, and renewable-energy technologies that have been selected for further study for possible implementation in the Federal sector. Additional information on Federal Technology Alerts is provided below.

Technology Installation Reviews— concise reports describing a new technology and providing case study results, typically from another demonstration program or pilot project.

Technology Focuses—brief information on new, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly technologies of potential interest to the Federal sector.
