Historic buildings have often been considered “off limits” for energy projects by agencies trying to meet their energy efficiency goals. However, high energy costs and federal mandates, such as the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005), have prompted agencies to consider the appropriate role of energy saving projects in historic buildings. EPAct 2005 requires federal buildings to achieve specific levels of energy efficiency and do not exempt historic buildings or even include historic preservation as a reason that an agency may exempt a building from the requirements of the law. Simultaneously, the National Historic Preservation Act calls for the preservation of our heritage in the built environment. And lastly, Executive Orders encourage private/public partnerships to meet the goals for both energy efficiency and historic preservation.
