State Facility Energy Savings Plan
On November 14, 2007, the MI Department of Management & Budget (DMB) began its compliance of Executive Directive 2007-22; an energy reduction strategy to reduce utility expenditures by 10% by the end of fiscal year 2008 (September 30, 2008), based on 2002 utility expenditures of approximately $16 million on DMB managed and owned buildings. Additionally, energy consumption must be reduced by another 10% by the end of fiscal year 2015 (September 30, 2015), compared to a 2006 baseline. This strategy incorporates benchmarking state-owned facilities through ENERGY STAR in partnership with the MI Department of Labor & Economic Growth/Energy Office. Some other goals DMB has set forth for their state facilities include centralizing energy usage and reduction data for statewide implementation of an energy reduction plan, researching and employing alternative and green energy initiatives wherever economically viable, and establishing partnerships with other state departments to employ energy reduction strategies throughout state government.
