This is the 2019 Annual Supplement to NIST Handbook 135, Life-Cycle Costing Manual for the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). The annual supplement provides energy price indices and discount factors for use with the Federal Energy Management Program's procedures for life-cycle cost analysis, as established by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in Subpart A of Part 436 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 436A), and amplified in NIST Handbook 135. These indices and factors are provided as an aid to implementing life-cycle cost evaluations of potential energy and water conservation and renewable energy investments in existing and new federally owned and leased buildings.
