This working group established under section 508 of the E.O. will consist of representatives appointed by CEQ, DOD, DOE, EPA, GSA, OMB, and other agencies designated by the Chair of CEQ. The working group must provide recommendations on implementation of the CFE goals and report semiannually to the Federal Chief Sustainability Officer and the NCTF on its actions and progress toward achievement of CFE goals.
Each agency shall increase its percentage use of carbon pollution-free electricity, so that it constitutes 100 percent of facility electrical energy use on an annual basis, and seek to match use on an hourly basis to achieve 50 percent 24/7 carbon pollution-free electricity, by fiscal year 2030. In addition, agencies shall facilitate new carbon pollution-free electricity generation and energy storage capacity by authorizing use of their real property assets, such as rooftops, parking structures, and adjoining land, for the development of new carbon pollution-free electricity generation and energy storage through leases, grants, permits, or other mechanisms, to the extent permitted by law.
