Recently released study results indicate measured federal agencies’ awareness of and ability to comply with energy management rules and regulations. The research indicates that only 13 percent of federal agency respondents were “definitely ready” to comply with mandatory energy reduction programs at the end of 2010.
The study found that more than a quarter of respondents think their federal agency is not required to comply with mandatory energy reduction programs. Basic awareness of programs varied:
- 50 percent were aware of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative,
- 38 percent were aware of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Scorecards,
- 31 percent were aware of the Executive Order 13423 and Executive Order 13514, and
- 23 percent of respondents were unaware of any such programs.
