Title: Fossil Fuel-Generated Energy Consumption Reduction for New Federal Buildings and Major Renovations of Federal Buildings 

This rulemaking implements provisions of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 that require the Department of Energy (DOE) to establish revised-performance standards for the construction of all new Federal buildings, including commercial, multi-family high-rise residential and low-rise residential buildings. This rulemaking specifically addresses the reduction of fossil fuel-generated energy consumption in new buildings and buildings undergoing major renovations, as well as how agencies may petition DOE for a downward adjustment of the requirements if they believe meeting required energy reduction levels would be technically impracticable.
