WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Fleet (FF) initiative is moving from the U.S. Department of Energy’s FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies Program to the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). The mission of FEMP is to help federal agencies find solutions to their energy challenges. FF has a similar mission — helping covered federal fleets meet the requirements of the Energy Policy Acts (EPAct) of 1992 and 2005 and Executive Order (E.O.) 13149. Under EPAct, federal agencies must purchase a certain number of alternative fuel vehicles each year, while E.O. 13149 requires agencies to reduce their petroleum consumption by 20 percent compared to their 1999 level. The move will be seamless for covered agencies and provide an opportunity for various federal energy savings programs to work more closely together.
