Sharing Transparency for a More Efficient Future

Alabama

Policy Description:

In December 2011, Governor Robert Bentley issued Executive Order 25 requiring that all state departments and agencies select an Energy Officer to analyze and recommend energy savings procedures and measures to reduce energy consumption by 30% from 2005 levels by 2015. All state agencies are also required to use the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to benchmark the energy efficiency of their buildings.
