Data call: FY08 Energy and Water Conservation Projects Reporting Period: FY08 (October 1, 2007 - September 30, 2008) Background: As required under Section 548 of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (NECPA), each agency is required to report annual energy/water activities (consumption, conservation measures taken, renewable energy, etc.). This spreadsheet will be used to collect NOAA's energy or water conservation projects completed in FY08. Summary of FY08 Energy Improvements: Building envelope improvements (door/window/roof replacements, caulking) - projects Instructions: Please fill out the spreadsheet below as best as you can for each of your energy and water conservation projects that were completed in FY08. Please note that reporting8your FY08 conservation successes is also away to highlight to NOAA and DOC senior managers/officials your hard work and great HVAC improvements - 11 projects accomplishments. Previous year's accomplishments have been included below as a reference and guide. Water conservation Projects - 6 projects Lighting upgrades - 6 projects Types of Project to Report: No project is too small or too big to report!
