DOE, DHS Partner for Energy Management Infrastructure Effort

The Department of Energy and the Department of Homeland Security have signed on a partnership to develop and implement an infrastructure aiming to reduce the latter department’s energy consumption without compromising security and resilience.

DOE said Tuesday the partnership supports the Federal Energy Management Program that seeks to aid all federal agencies in handling energy consumption.

The FEMP effort entails the implementation of a federal infrastructure that will be made to support energy management across the federal government’s total of over 350,000 buildings and 600,000 vehicles.

The DOE-DHS partnership intends to develop an enterprise-wide system to support water, energy, transportation, information technology and facility management across DHS branches such as the U.S. Coast Guard, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Border Patrol, and the Transportation Security Administration.

The system to result from the partnership may be implemented at other federal agencies, in support of FEMP’s goal.
