Title: The Past, Present, and Future of Resource Efficiency Managers in the Federal Sector

Abstract

Resource Energy Managers (REMs) are a relatively new and important tool available to Federal sites seeking to realize energy efficiency. REMs are individuals skilled in the discipline of energy management that work on site to support energy managers in realizing energy and energy cost savings. The REM concept has been successfully demonstrated many times over, with an average savings-to-investment ratio of $3.4-to-$1 realized. These successes have helped to grow the number of Federal sites contracting REM services to over 40, with this number increasing annually. And with EPAct 2005 establishing even more aggressive Federal energy efficiency goals and requirements, REMs can offer agencies and sites the added technical expertise needed for them to succeed.
