The Administrator of GSA established the Committee on June 20, 2011 (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 118) pursuant to Section 494 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA, 42 U.S.C. 17123). Under this authority, the Committee provides independent policy advice and recommendations to GSA to advance federal building innovations in planning, design, and operations to reduce costs, enable agency missions, enhance human health and performance, and minimize environmental impacts.
The Renewables Outleasing Task Group will explore third-party, onsite, renewable power generation, with a focus on solar power and perhaps energy storage, on federal building roofs, parking lots, garages and other parcels where conducive.
The Embodied Energy Task Group will study the energy savings as well as pollution and cost savings to be garnered by a more precise focus on the energy embodied in Federal building construction and major renovation.
The conference calls will allow the task groups to develop consensus recommendations to the full Committee, which will, in turn, decide whether to proceed with formal advice to GSA based upon these recommendations.
