The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is seeking comments (Word 29 KB) on draft guidance (Word 45 KB) regarding federal renewable energy purchases required under Section 203 (Word 22 KB) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
FEMP is particularly interested in comments with respect to: 1) whether new renewable resources should be required to meet part or all of the goal, 2) whether renewable energy projects on federal facilities should be counted toward the federal goal if the project output is not used by the federal agency, and 3) whether thermal renewable energy should be included. FEMP developed the draft guidance in collaboration with other federal agencies that are members of the Renewable Working Group, a subcommittee of the Federal Interagency Energy Management Task Force. Comments are requested by close of business on December 7, 2005, and should be sent via email to Jim Hoelscher.
