Energy Policy Act
Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-58)
There are many elements of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 that directly impact the federal sector, and, depending upon future federal appropriations, will significantly help the federal sector reduce energy costs and meet energy goals.
- New energy reduction goal of 2% per year from 2005-2015, with FY 2003 as the new baseline
- Increased emphasis on renewable energy
- Reauthorization of the Energy Savings Performance Contract program to 30 September 2016 to provide an avenue for federal agencies to meet the new goals and save operational costs. Note: The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 permanently extends the ESPC authority.
