DOE Federal Energy Management Program - FEMP

The Federal government faces broad exposure to risk and costs posed by climate change – but what does this mean for energy and water managers? With increased requirements for climate literacy among Federal attendees, this Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) training course aims to help attendees understand basic climate change concepts, how they apply to federal energy and water management responsibilities, and provides training and examples on climate-informed decision making.


Dr. Julie Snow, Senior Climate Resilience Specialist, Department of Defense - Navy
