DOE Federal Energy Management Program - FEMP

A Treasure Hunt is a free guided training program which assists agencies in meeting mandated energy & water reduction, decarbonization, electrification milestones per Executive Order 14057, Energy Act of 2020 and Energy Independence Act of 2007. FEMP utilizes the Train-the-Trainer concept to facilitate identification and minor adjustments to facility infrastructure assets such as building automation systems (BAS) and HVAC systems. In addition, training will be provided to accurately measure lighting levels, plug load, irrigation, water consumption, and air compressor optimization. FEMP will also work side-by-side with onsite personnel to calculate commonly used energy and water savings tools such as DOE/ FEMPS MEASUR tool. Ultimately the training received will be used to train others to complete on-going treasure hunts at additional facilities to further impact on the agency's goals. FEMP's goal is to develop an open, free avenue for continued support to help agencies strategically meet their energy efficiency and O&M goals on a long-term basis.
