Also see Case Studies.


The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) offers an ongoing series of workshops and webinars to train Federal agencies on how to implement UESC projects. Visit the FEMP events calendar for upcoming training opportunities.

UESC Virtual Center of Expertise

The Virtual Center of Expertise helps Federal agencies and utilities significantly streamline the UESC implementation process and access the resources and expertise needed to overcome project barriers. The center provides project teams with FEMP points of contact and maintains a list of agency, utility, and financing experts willing to assist their peers with project implementation based on their own experiences. The center also offers sample documents and templates necessary for UESC implementation. These resources are made available to help promote the benefits of implementing a UESC project.

FEMP maintains a list of contacts from agencies and utilities who volunteered to serve as references to UESC inquiries. These points of contact are available to provide support for contracts, technical services, and regulations in UESC project implementation.
