FEMP Awards 2019 AFFECT Grants to Federal Facilities
FEMP has announced more than $5 million in funding for 11 projects to catalyze the adoption of energy and water efficiency and renewable energy technologies at facilities across the Federal Government. Agencies will use FEMP's Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) funding in conjunction with external, leveraged funding, such as ESPCs, to amplify the projects' impacts. Projects will advance energy affordability, integrate technologies that increase the resilience of a site and that are not commonly part of a leveraged project, and support the deployment of integrated energy systems that allow for standardized and streamlined practices to save energy and promote the safety, health, and operations of federal facilities. Cost-shared with industry, the total investment in energy and water efficiency could reach more than $140 million.
