Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transport Management
Promotes renewable energy generation projects in federal agencies and determines that each agency should ensure that half of the statutorily required renewable energy consumed in a fiscal year comes from new renewable sources.
Determines that each federal agency should reduce energy intensity by 3% annually until the end of fiscal year 2015 or 30% by the end of fiscal year 2015, relative to energy use in 2003.
Determines that if an agency operates a fleet of at least 20 motor vehicles it must ensure a 10% annual increase in total fuel consumption that is non-petroleum based relative to 2005. Each agency must equally ensure the use of plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) vehicles when these are commercially available at a reasonably comparable life-cycle cost to non-PHEV vehicles.
Requires each federal agency to:
- Improve energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions
- Procure energy from new renewable sources
- Adhere to sustainable environmental practices (i.e. acquisition of bio-based, environ-mentally preferable, energy-efficient, water-efficient and recycled-content products)
- Reduce the fleet's total consumption of petroleum products.
2% annual reduction in petroleum and 10% annual increase in non-petroleum fuel consumption in agency fleets with at least 20 vehicles by 2015 against a 2005 baseline
At least half renewable energy consumed comes from new renewable sources
Either 3% annual energy intensity reduction or 30% total reduction by 2015 against a 2003 baseline
