Growth in Federal Purchases Continues

April 2004 - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) reports that annual federal agency purchases of green power reached 527 million kWh in March 2004, an increase of 70% from July 2003. Including renewable energy generated from on-site systems, the federal government uses 1,067 million kWh of renewable energy annually, which puts it more than three-quarters of the way toward meeting the 2.5% federal renewable energy usage goal for 2005. The federal goal was established by DOE pursuant to Executive Order 13123 (PDF 104 KB), which directed federal agencies to increase their use of renewable energy.
