Laws and Requirements

To help agencies comply with federal laws and requirements, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) analyzes energy management legal authorities, develops guidance documents, and publishes notices and rules.

FEMP also provides tools to help agencies report annual facility and fleet progress and offers performance data. Agencies are required to report annual progress made toward these federal laws and requirements.
