The Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG), initiated in 1994, establishes partnerships and facilitates communications among Federal agencies, utilities, and energy service companies. Together FUPWG partners develop strategies to help implement cost-effective energy efficiency and water conservation projects. The common interest is to reduce the cost of government through utility incentive programs at Federal sites.
The Federal Utility Partnership Working Group meets twice per year to share success stories, information on FEMP programs and products, and other FUPWG business.
