1 Leading By Example towards a Clean Energy Economy and Sustainable Natural Environment Signed by Governor Markell on February 17, 2010.

2  Reduce energy consumption 30% by FY2015.  Create a statewide energy audit plan and implementing energy savings projects through SEU-financed guaranteed energy performance contracts.  Establish benchmark and tracking system to monitor energy usage and carbon emissions of all state-owned and leased buildings by 12/31/11.  Obtain 30% of the state’s overall annual electric demand from clean, renewable sources by end of FY2013.

3  Incorporate LEED silver standards into new construction and renovation projects and the operation of state facilities.  Achieve 75% waste diversion from landfills by end of FY2012.  Reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions by 25% and vehicle miles traveled by 15% by end of FY2012.  Develop and implement Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy by August 30, 2010.

4  EO18 Workgroup formed. Executive agencies represented by 13 Agency Sustainability Managers (SMs) plus additional OMB and DNREC personnel.  Energy tracking system chosen and SMs trained in its use. Energy usage data for 81 facilities encompassing more than 4.8 million square feet have been entered into the system.  Reverse energy auction held April, 2010. The auction achieved FY2013 renewable energy goals in FY 2011 (green power to be supplied at 25% above the state’s RPS).  Vehicle tracking installed in all Fleet vehicles and a limited number of agency-owned vehicles reporting miles and emissions, and fuel consumption tracked from gas cards weekly.

5  Statewide Energy Performance Contracting in process.  Waste diversion base year and rate calculated statewide – FY2010 @ 6.4% waste diversion (construction & demo not included in %).  Single stream recycling added to state trash removal contract – to be awarded end June 2010.  Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy in draft form.  EO 18 Implementation Guide drafted.

6  Living document comprised of individual step- by-step work plans for each area of the EO led by agency SMs.  Includes State Facility Energy Audit Plan.  Includes an Addendum for State Employee Education/Communication plan.  Outlines reporting requirements for state agencies.

7  Produce a master list of all state owned and leased facilities – 7/1/10 completion.  Create “Cross-Agency Facilities Management Group” – 7/1/10 completion.  Develop operational policies and procedures to that achieve EO 18 goals including LEED - 9/1/10 completion.  Develop standard procedures to quantify energy consumption savings from operational changes – 10/1/10 completion.

8  Identify and enter data for all facilities into Portfolio Manager – 12/1/10 completion.  Collate/organize data from Portfolio Manager – 12/30/10 completion.  Track energy improvement initiatives.  Report on corrective actions for metering problems.

9  Produce a facilities list to be audited for energy performance contracts – completed.  Collaborate with the SEU to initiate energy audits and GESAs – 6/25/10 completion.  Manage energy audits for “first wave” performance contracts – 11/1/10 completion.  Investigate funding sources for projects not incorporated into GESAs – 12/15/10 completion.

10  State-wide waste diversion base year established as FY2010 and current rate is 6.4% (not including C&D waste).  Implement state-wide single stream recycling – 7/1/10 completion.  Implement state-wide oil/fluids recycling – 9/30/10 completion.  Implement composting opportunities for food/organic wastes – 9/30/10 completion.  Education and outreach for state agencies and employees – on-going

11  Ensure all future vehicle purchases that meet the goals of EO 18 – in place.  Reduce vehicle miles traveled by 15% by tracking all agencies miles – in process.  Reduce petroleum consumption by 25 % by tracking weekly consumption and initiating education and alternative fuels availability.  Reduce employee commuting miles and work related travel through technology and education.

12  Finalize state-wide EPP Policy – 8/30/10 completion.  Implement EPP Policy within state contracts – on-going.  Agencies awareness and implementation of EPP Policy – 10/30 completion.  Track EPP Policy Implementation – on-going.

13  State employee education and outreach program on all areas of the EO 18 will be implemented.  “Rethink, Reuse, Reduce & Recycle” Program.  Program will need top-level support initiated by the Governor and Agency heads.

14  Each agency is required to report quarterly on their progress in achieving EO 18 goals and standards.  Agency reports will be submitted to the EO 18 Workgroup and the workgroup will compile a statewide quarterly report.  Reports will be submitted to the Cabinet Committee on Energy and the Governor’s Office.  A universal reporting template is currently being developed for use by the agencies.

15  Cabinet Committee on Energy must approve EO18 Implementation Guide.  Move forward with performance contracting and audit plan.  Continue energy benchmarking for all state facilities.  Start EO18 education for state employees.  Support operational changes (e.g. temperature and lighting controls, recycling, reduced vehicle usage) required to achieve EO 18 goals.
