Slow Progress in Fed Energy, Emissions Efforts

Washington DC

The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) reports that the federal government is reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and improving its energy efficiency.

The improvements did not hit the targets, however. The report by Federal News Radio said that last year the energy intensity reduction was 22.7 percent from a fiscal 2003 baseline. The goal was 30 percent. There was a reduction of 2.2 British thermal units (Btus) from fiscal 2014, the report said. Commentary in the story suggests that officials were disappointed with the results. Officials put at least some of the blame on the cold weather during the period.

It was announced last month that the U.S. General Services Administration last has signed a $72.2 million contract with Amerisco to do energy upgrades and retrofits to four buildings in Washington, D.C.
