ORNL provides support for DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program and works with its stakeholders to enable federal agencies to meet energy-related goals, identify affordable solutions, facilitate public-private partnerships, and provide energy leadership to the country by identifying and leveraging government best practices. 

FEMP focuses on services that help agencies meet energy-and water-reduction requirements and goals. These services include funding opportunities, workforce development, technical assistance, procurement and financing, interagency collaboration, publications and guidance, tools and recognition and awards. 

With more than 350,000 energy-utilizing buildings and 600,000 vehicles, the federal government is the nation’s largest energy consumer. Energy used in buildings and facilities represents about 40% of the total site-delivered energy use of the federal government, with vehicle and equipment energy use accounting for 60%.
