FEMP Award Ceremony

Overview of the Federal Energy and Water Management Awards, where the FEMP will hand out 4 types of awards to around 30 individuals or teams.

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is administered by the Department of Energy and aims to have the country’s largest consumer of energy, the Federal Government, lead by example in terms of implementing renewable energy and water management innovations. It does this by providing resources for federal agencies to ensure they are operating in an energy efficient manner, and helping redesign federal facilities with environmental friendliness as a top focus.

The FEMP also recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of energy management for the US government. The Federal Energy and Water Management Awards celebrates individuals, groups, and agencies that have made “outstanding contributions in the areas of energy and water efficiency, resilience, and technology achievements; distributed energy, cybersecurity, and fleet management at federal facilities.”
