The federal government has taken the position that it should lead by example in the energy efficiency of buildings. Through a variety of mandates for its portfolio of 429,000 buildings, the government has established aggressive energy goals for federal agencies. Some major deadlines for compliance begin in 2015.

This webinar will discuss the government’s goals and how federal agencies are developing tools and strategies to meet them, including the Deep Energy Retrofit program.  

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the energy goals for federal buildings established in various mandates, including the Energy Independence and Security Act, the Energy Policy Act, and two recent Executive Orders.
  • Understand various strategies and tools that federal agencies are using to become compliant with mandates, and the gaps and obstacles to achieving them.
  • Learn how the federal government is implementing performance contracting to support its energy efficiency goals and the results of its Deep Energy Retrofit program.
  • Understand how federal energy efforts are influencing the commercial buildings industry.
