Government-wide Coordination

Transitioning to 100 percent CFE, and achieving 50 percent 24/7 CFE, will require coordination across agencies to streamline energy purchasing, consolidate and aggregate procurements, and leverage the expertise of the Department of Defense (DOD), DOE, and the General Services Administration (GSA) to contract for electricity for Federal agencies. Agencies must coordinate with DOD, DOE, and GSA to develop procurement strategies to achieve CFE goals and targets. DOD, DOE, and GSA must develop, in consultation with EPA and DOE-FEMP, robust accounting to facilitate tracking of CFE produced, used, or facilitated through such procurements.

Full Text

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.
