Department Of Energy: Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy

  • Annual Federal Facility Energy Reporting Requirements
    Released January of Each Year
    Section 548(a) of NECPA (42 U.S.C. 8258(a)) requires each Federal agency to submit a report annually to the U.S. Department of Energy on activities to meet the energy management requirements of Section 543 of NECPA (42 U.S.C. 8253). Information and data collected from the agencies will be used to develop DOE’s Annual Report to Congress on Federal Government Energy Management
  • Annual GHG and Sustainability Report
    The Annual GHG and Sustainability Data Report collects agency-aggregated data necessary for calculating scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the commonly-used, native units of energy consumption and fugitive emissions as well as activity data for estimating scope 3 indirect emissions – and other required data elements.
  • Federal Energy Management Annual Reports
    Federal agencies are required to submit annual fiscal year reports on their energy management efforts in facilities to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). DOE uses the information and data from these reports to develop the Annual Report to Congress on Federal Government Energy Management.
  • Solar Energy Technologies Program Annual Report
    Released Various Days from May-September
    The Solar Energy Technologies Program (SETP or Solar Program) works to develop cost-competitive solar energy systems for America. More than $170 million is spent each year in research and development (R&D) on two solar electric technologies with the greatest potential to reach cost competitiveness by 2015: photovoltaics (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP). The greatest R&D challenges are reducing costs, improving system performance, and finding new ways to generate and store energy captured from the sun.

Energy Information Administration

  • Annual Energy Outlook 2012
    Released annually in the spring
