Energy Management Goals
[EO 13423,
Sec 2 (a)]

3% percent annual reduction through the end of fiscal year 2015, and 30% by the end of fiscal year 2015, relative to the fiscal year 2003 baseline.

(Note: This was changed from EPAct 05 requirement of 20% reduction by 2015 compared to 2003 baseline).


Federal Building Performance Standards
[EPAct 05, Sec. 109]

Buildings to be designed to achieve energy consumption levels at least 30% below levels established by ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004.

100% of designs started since beginning of FY07 are 30% more energy efficient.

[EPAct 05, Sec.109]

Develop and implement sustainable design building principles in the siting, design and construction of new facilities.


Energy Use Measurement and Accounting
[EPAct 05, Sec. 103]

Advanced metering systems for electricity required in all facilities by 2012 (where practicable).


Renewables Federal Purchase Requirement
[EPAct 05, Sec. 203]

Renewable electricity consumption not less than 3% in FY 2007-2009; 5% in FY 2010-2012; 7.5% in FY 2013+.


Renewable Energy
[OUSD Policy Memo,18 Nov 05]

Increase the amount of renewable energy to 25% of total energy consumed by the year 2025.


Renewable Sources
[EO 13423 Sec. 2 (b)]

At least 50% of current renewable energy purchases must come from new renewable sources.

5.8% of total purchased electrical energy was from R.E. in FY09

Renewable Energy
[EPAct 05, Sec. 204]

Strive to expand the use of renewable energy in activities; purchasing electricity from renewable energy sources.

66 renewable energy projects.

Fossil Fuels [EISA 2007, Sec. 433] Design buildings to reduce fossil fuel-generated energy consumption as compared to FY 2003 (as measured by CBECS or RECS data). 55% reduction by 2010, 65% by 2015, 80% by 2020, 90% by 2025, and 100% by 2030. Not yet tracked

Water Conservation
[EO 13423,
Sec 2 (c)]

Beginning in FY 2008, reduce water consumption intensity, relative to the baseline of the agency’s water consumption in fiscal year 2007, through life-cycle cost-effective measures by 2 percent annually through the end of fiscal year 2015 or 16 percent by the end of fiscal year 2015.


[EPAct, Sec.105]

Maximize use of alternative financing contracting mechanisms.

Issued 16 delivery orders for ESPC/UESC program.

Procurement of Energy Efficient Products
[EPAct, Sec. 104]

All equipment and materials purchased or installed to be EnergyStar rated or FEMP approved.

Acquisition Action.

aAll goals are based on life-cycle-cost effectiveness.
bAs of FY 2009 unless otherwise indicated.
