DOE Announces $5 Million to Develop Clean Energy Projects at Federal Facilities

Date: 9/22/2014

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $5 million in funding for nine projects that will advance the development of combined heat and power and renewable energy technologies at federal government facilities and help meet energy efficiency, renewable energy, and greenhouse gas reduction goals. As the nation's largest single user of energy, the federal government is working to achieve a number of energy, water, and carbon pollution reduction goals, including improving the energy intensity of its facilities by 30% by 2015 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 28% by 2020. Renewable energy at federal facilities also represents a large clean energy resource for the United States. Federal agencies are working toward a goal of 20% of their electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020, as directed in a December 2013 Presidential Memorandum.
