WASHINGTON, DC — Nine organizations and two individuals were honored by the Department of Energy (DOE) for implementing significant energy-efficiency improvements at federal facilities around the country.

According to the DOE, the efforts of those recognized helped to reduce energy consumption in DOE buildings in fiscal year 2000 by more than 40% in Btu per gross square foot, exceeding the federal government’s energy goals.

  • Organizations — Pacific North-west National Laboratory (Richland, WA); Fermilab (Argonne, IL);
  • Outstanding Individual Effort — Steve Greenberg, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Livermore, CA);
