FEMP Prioritizes Product Procurement Specification Development

November 22, 2010

FEMP prioritized product procurement specification development, establishing the following three-tier priority structure:  

  • Tier 1: FEMP designated
  • Tier 2: High priority ENERGY STAR
  • Tier 3: Product requests by Federal agencies  

Based on the identified tiers, FEMP will review the need to develop, revise, or remove purchasing specifications and/or guidance for these products on a two year cycle.  

From that review, FEMP developed a draft list of products that will be addressed in Fiscal Year 2011, which includes:  

  • Fluorescent ballasts
  • Fluorescent luminaires
  • Industrial luminaires
  • Water-cooled ice machines
  • Commercial boilers
  • Electric motors
  • Pre-rinse spray valves
  • Electric storage water heaters
  • Fluorescent lamps
  • Downlight luminaires
  • Low standby power products  

This list is subject to change at the discretion of DOE based on the initial market analysis of the product and other relevant criteria. FEMP is interested in comments based on the list. Contact Stephen Walder at 202-586-9209 or stephen.walder@ee.doe.gov.
