Senate Appropriations Committee Report,
Treasury, Postal Service, and General Government
Senate Report Number: 104-330
July 23, 1996


In the judgment of the Committee, the Federal Government needs to give greater priority to reducing energy costs associated with the facilities it owns, leases, and operates. In the furtherance of this objective, and in compliance with the reporting requirements of section 547(a) of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 8258(a)), the Committee directs that each Federal agency establish or make use of a centralized accounting system for the determination of the energy costs for the buildings it owns, leases, or operates. In addition, and in compliance with the reporting requirements of section 545 of the National Energy Conservation Act (42 U.S.C. 8255), the Committee directs that, beginning with its fiscal year 1998, the budget request for each Federal agency be accompanied by: (1) a statement of the amount of appropriations requested for electricity and other energy costs associated with the operation and maintenance of facilities owned, operated, or leased by such agency; and (2) a description of the activities being carried out by each agency to reduce energy costs in accordance with section 543 of the National Energy Conservation Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 8254) and Executive Order 12902.

Finally, by March 31, 1997, each agency shall submit to the Committee a report containing: (1) figures for actual energy use in its facilities during fiscal year 1996; (2) its strategy for implementing a centralized facilities energy cost accounting system; (3) its strategy for meeting the 2005 energy use reduction goals of Executive Order 12902 for facilities it owns, leases, or operates; and (4) a list of specific energy savings projects to be implemented by the agency in fiscal year 1997.
