DOE Sends First Energy Saving Team to Federal Facility in New York
DOE deployed its first Federal Energy Saving team to a General Services Administration facility in Jamaica, New York, on October 27th. The team will assess operational energy efficiency measures—focusing on low-cost and no-cost measures—and will conduct training, provide summary assessments of long-term efficiency opportunities, and work with on-site personnel to develop an implementation plan. The effort is part of the "Easy Ways to Save Energy" campaign announced by Energy Secretary Bodman on October 3rd. In the coming months, DOE expects to deploy energy-saving teams to the 30 largest federal facilities and the top 200 energy-intensive manufacturing facilities in the United States.
