FEMP First Thursday Seminars


The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) runs seminars on the first Thursday of every month to help federal energy, environmental, and fleet professionals plan and execute projects to help meet federal goals and requirements.

FEMP is part of the US Department of Energy (DOE). With more than 350,000 buildings and 600,000 road vehicles, the federal government is the US’ largest energy consumer. Federal agencies have a tremendous opportunity and an obligation to reduce energy, water, and petroleum use, as well as greenhouse gas emissions in their operations. The FEMP provides agencies with the information, tools, and assistance they need to meet and track their energy-related requirements and goals.
