Energy Department awards 16 contracts
The U.S. Department of Energy says it has awarded 16 energy savings performance contracts that could result in $80 billion in energy projects.
Officials said the energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation projects at federally owned buildings and facilities demonstrate
a commitment to sound government stewardship by recognizing efforts to save energy, reduce federal energy costs, cut greenhouse gas emissions, bring more cutting-edge technologies into use, strengthen national security and create a stronger economy.

Officials said the contracts provide for a maximum individual contract value of $5 billion over the life of the agreement, eliminate technology specific restrictions and allow federal agencies to use the contracts in federal buildings, nationally and internationally.
