Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) Winter Seminar Webinar
This year’s Winter Federal Utility Partnership Working Group (FUPWG) Seminar will be offered as a webinar for those unable to attend in person. Agency travel policies have made it difficult for some Federal employees to attend this seminar so we are bringing it to you! Participants will be able to view the presentations online while listening to the speakers live via conference call. This is a great opportunity to learn more about FUPWG and FEMP’s Utility Program. We also invite utility contacts to participate and gain a better understanding of the benefits of becoming involved in FUPWG. The entire first morning of the FUPWG Seminar will be presented.
- Welcome – Jerome Davis, Xcel Energy
- Chairman’s Corner – David McAndrew, DOE FEMP
- Washington Update – Skye Schell, DOE FEMP
- National Renewable Energy Laboratory Overview – Bobi Garrett, NREL
- Energy Systems Integration Services – Bryan Hannegan, NREL
- Energy Reliability in a Changing Landscape Panel
Register soon as space is limited. All confirmed registrants will receive an email with detailed instructions. Please visit the FUPWG website for additional information and to access the sign-in site if you are able to join us in person at the meeting in Golden, CO.
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.

High Efficiency Parking Lighting for Federal Agencies: The Time Is Now to Join LEEP and Get the Resources You Need
State-of-the-art lighting technology can provide rapid return on investments by reducing energy use 20% to 70%, compared to typical practice. Some have also realized significant reductions in lighting maintenance costs, in part because of the longevity of the new technologies. The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) encourages Federal agencies to take advantage of these energy saving lighting systems, and to highlight their commitment and successes by joining the Lighting Energy in Parking (LEEP) Campaign.
This course covers the best known methods for reducing the energy-intensity of data centers by utilizing server-virtualization, optimizing the temperature within the data center, selecting energy-efficient cooling options, how to arrange server racks and aisles and many other efficiency opportunities. It emphasizes the need for server administrators to work with, rather than independent of facility operators.
