August 1, 2002

In support of the energy efficiency and renewable energy goals set by Executive Order 13123, the Presidential directive on "Energy Conservation at Federal Facilities," and the National Energy Policy, FEMP would like to hear from Federal agencies that require technical assistance in the following areas:

  • new construction,
  • energy and water efficiency retrofits of existing facilities,
  • distributed generation projects including renewable energy on-site generation and combined heat and power systems, and
  • operations and maintenance.

Technical assistance includes screening for project opportunities, feasibility studies, procurement specifications (including architect and engineering services), design review, sustainable facility workshops, and performance measurements. The total value for FY 2003 technical assistance is up to $500,000 to be distributed among selected projects.

The application, technical criteria evaluation, and additional details are available at www.eere.energy.gov/femp/techassist/callforprojects.html. Applications may be submitted online at http://femp.nrel.gov/tacalls/logon.ta. The deadline for submitting applications is August 30, 2002. Agencies that participated in the FY 2002 call for projects are encouraged to reapply. Successful and non-successful applicants will be notified by October 31, 2002.
