Buildings/ Facilities Energy Management and Water Conservation Plan
Abstract: Presents the DOI's plan for conserving energy and water in buildings and facilities. The Plan provides a sound basis for the accomplishment of the mandated buildings and facilities goals articulated in Executive Orders relating to energy and water conservation. They include a 20% reduction by FY 2000 and a 30% more efficient use of energy in Federal buildings and facilities by FY 2005 (as compared to energy used in FY 1985), minimization of petroleum use, and procurement of energy efficient goods.
