“Cool roofs are ready to save energy, cool urban heat islands, and help slow global warming… Cool roofs are one of the quickest and lowest cost ways we can reduce our global carbon emissions and begin the hard work of slowing climate change… By demonstrating the benefits of cool roofs on our facilities, the federal government can lead the nation toward more sustainable building practices, while reducing the federal carbon footprint and saving money for taxpayers.” said Secretary Chu. “
The Secretary today also issued a letter to the heads of other federal agencies, encouraging them to take similar steps at their facilities. To offer additional support for federal and commercial building operators that are looking to install cool roofs, DOE released its Guidelines for Selecting Cool Roofs, which provides technical assistance on types of roofing materials and how to select the roof that will work best on a specific facility. The Federal government has written a Guideline for Selecting Cool Roofs in July 2010. The DOE in July 19, 2010 stated Review the complete Guidelines for Selecting Cool Roofs (pdf – 909 kb).
President Obama and Secretary Chu have made clear that the federal government should play a leading role in moving the nation toward a more sustainable future. Under President Obama’s Executive Order on Sustainability, the federal government has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 28 percent by 2020. As part of that effort, Secretary Chu has directed all DOE offices to install cool roofs, whenever cost effective over the lifetime of the roof, when constructing new roofs or replacing old ones at DOE facilities. With cool roofs, these federal buildings will consume less energy, offset additional carbon emissions, and save taxpayers money. Read Secretary Chu’s memorandum (pdf – 395 kb).
The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has already installed more than two million square feet of cool and white roofs at NNSA sites across the country. Through the Roof Asset Management Program (RAMP) NNSA currently saves an average of $500,000 a year in energy cost and expects to save more than $10 million over the next 15 years. Overall, NNSA has reduced building cooling and heating cost by an average of 70% annually on reroofed areas by installing cool roofs and installing insulation.
U.S. Department of Energy writes” Secretary Chu Announces Steps to Implement Cool roofs at DOE and Across the Federal Government.” He directs all DOE offices to install cool roofs. With cool roofs, these federal buildings will consume less energy, offset additional carbon emissions, and save taxpayers money.”
U.S. Department of Energy writes “GUIDELINES FOR SELECTING COOL ROOFS” and distributes it to all government offices. The first sentence of the book states “Cool roofs can help many building owners save money while protecting the environment.”
Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy sends memorandum that states “Effective method for reducing building energy use is installation of a cool roofs. Yet, cool roofs do even more it reduces “heat island effect”, lowering air temperature and improving air quality. Effective immediately roof replacements and roofs for new construction shall be cool roofs.”
Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy sends memorandum that states “The Department of Energy must set the example in energy and GHG (greenhouse gas emissions) stewardship for the rest of the Government.”
President Obama signs Executive Order on the federal government has committed to reducing GHG (greenhouse gas emissions), consume less energy and save taxpayers money. It states that on of the ways to do that is install Cool Roofs. They have set goals of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 28% by 2020. The have set in place accounting, tracking and procedures to an action plan to accomplish their Goals.
