Renewable Energy



In keeping with the Department’s commitment to preserving our nation’s natural resources, bureaus and offices are striving to maximize renewable energy consumption. The Department is meeting the following goals set by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 for renewable electricity generation and consumption as a percentage of the total annual facility electricity consumed:

Fiscal Year
Percentage of Renewable Electricity
2010 through 2012
5
2013 and thereafter
7.5

Of these requirements, at least 50 percent is met through the use of renewable energy sources placed into service after January 1, 1999.

If life cycle cost effective, at least 30 percent of the hot water demand for each new building or major renovation be met through the installation and use of solar hot water heaters.
