U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Steven Chu announced a series of initiatives in July 2010 to more broadly implement cool roof technologies on DOE facilities and across the Federal Government. As part of that effort, Secretary Chu directed all DOE offices to install cool roofs, whenever cost effective over the lifetime of the roof, when constructing new or replacing old roofs. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program assembled a list of cool roof resources to help Federal energy managers learn more about cool roof technologies and how they can be deployed.
