Sustainable Federal Operations

Sustainable Federal Operations

The Energy Technologies Group (ETA) works in sustainable federal operations to support the implementation of sustainable policies and practices in the public sector. The work serves as a bridge between the research, development, and deployment expertise of national laboratories and the operational needs of agencies working to meet energy, environment, and sustainability goals. 

Our research activities in this area involves many aspects of integrating sustainability into buildings and government practices including technical assistance for sustainable building design; operations and maintenance; project financing for sustainable facilities; institutional change in support of sustainability policy goals; and procurement of sustainable products.
