Green Power Partnership Top 10 Federal Government
The Executive Order 13693: Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade, released March 19, 2015, declared that 30 percent of electricity consumed by the federal government is to come from renewable energy sources by 2025. In fiscal year 2015, federal renewable electricity consumption was 8.3 percent, or 4.6 billion kilowatt-hours, of its total electricity consumption.
Federal agencies can achieve this 30 percent renewable energy target by:
- Installing agency-funded renewable energy on site at federal facilities and retain corresponding renewable energy certificates (RECs) or obtain equal value replacement RECs.
- Contracting for the purchase of energy that includes the installation of renewable energy on site at a federal facility or off site from a federal facility and the retention of corresponding RECs or obtaining equal value replacement RECs for the term of the contract.
- Purchasing electricity and corresponding RECs or obtain equal value replacement RECs.
- Purchasing RECs.
The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Exit provides resources and tools that help federal agencies implement renewable energy projects and technologies to meet federal laws and requirements.
