The President’s Climate Action Plan stated a goal for the Federal government to consume 20 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020 – more than double the current goal of 7.5 percent. The path to that goal was then established in the December 2013 Presidential Memorandum, Federal Leadership in Energy Management. The Climate Action Plan also called on the Federal community to continue efforts to improve energy efficiency at Federal facilities through redoubling of energy savings performance contracting efforts. Taken together, these actions will reduce the demand for energy, and ensure that the remaining demand strengthens the development of new renewable energy sources. They will also ensure that we stay on a path to meet the President’s Federal government-wide target, announced in 2010, of a 28 percent reduction in direct greenhouse gas emissions and a 13 percent reduction in indirect emissions by 2020.
