Renewable Energy Project Planning and Implementation
Federal renewable energy projects can be large or small and managed by a third-party or the agency. Typically, large-scale projects—larger than 10 megawatts (MWs)—are financed, planned, and implemented by the private sector. Distributed-scale projects (smaller than 10 MWs) are funded and managed by either the agency through agency appropriations or a renewable energy developer through a project funding mechanism. The complexity of large-scale projects means there are separate processes for smaller and larger projects.

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides project assistance to Federal agencies to help them identify and implement renewable energy technologies. Find out about FEMP project assistance.
