Greening EPA

Energy Efficiency at EPA

In FY 2014, EPA reduced its energy intensity 29 percent compared to the FY 2003 baseline required for federal agencies. This reduction exceeded the 27 percent target agencies are required to meet by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. EPA achieved these savings through a combination of improved space utilization, commissioning and capital investments to upgrade equipment and infrastructure.

Under Executive Order 13693, federal agencies are required to reduce energy intensity 2.5 percent annually through 2025, compared to a baseline year of FY 2015. EPA is well on its way to meeting those requirements.
