[en] The emergence of climate change and energy efficiency have amplified the need for energy policies at large scales. The criticality and dimensions of such problems are reflected in the energy policies of many countries and regions; however, the implementation of energy policies in an effective manner along with the assessment of their success have not been investigated in detail. Energy policies often derive from broad strategic goals and may not include specific or operational implementation plans. Accordingly, the effectiveness of those energy policies is also evaluated at the strategic level, which may fail to appropriately evaluate the policy performance at lower levels. This paper proposes an approach that enables policy- and decision-makers to assess the effectiveness of energy policies at strategic, tactical, and operational (STO) levels. This approach herein referred to as the “STO framework” enables assessing energy policies in terms of both the strategic goal achievements and the implementation details. Results of this study illuminate potential advantages and limitations of using the STO framework as an energy policy assessment tool. Moreover, findings of this study suggest that the strategic, tactical and operational levels should be identified explicitly in future energy policies in order to improve their effectiveness. - Highlights: • Energy policies often derive from broad strategic goals and do not include implementation plans. • Success of energy policies should be assessed at strategic, tactical, and operational levels. • Policies with defined strategic, tactical, and operational levels are more likely to succeed.

[en] Nuclear security is a State responsibility in which the establishment of an effective national nuclear security infrastructure is a key prerequisite. An essential element of this infrastructure is the advancement of a legislative and regulatory programme to give all competent authorities, particularly regulatory authorities, a role in the national nuclear security infrastructure that provides appropriate legal authority, including the ability to undertake enforcement action. A complete regulatory framework enables the regulatory authority to authorize approval of facilities with nuclear security assets, conduct inspections of these facilities, and take enforcement action in response to noncompliance with regulatory requirements related to nuclear security. In addition, the regulatory authority should encourage public understanding of enforcement programme actions through transparent and open publication of the imposition of sanctions and other administrative measures taken in response to regulatory non compliances. On October 5, 1999 the U.S. Congress amended the U.S. Atomic Energy Act (the Act) of 1954 (42 U.S. Code 2011 et seq.) by adding section 234B to establish a system of monetary sanctions for U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers who violate any applicable rule, regulation, or order prescribed or otherwise issued by the Secretary of Energy relating to the protection of specific types of nuclear security information. As a result, on January 26, 2005, DOE published a final rule at Title 10 Code of Federal Regulations (10 C.F.R.) Part 824 to implement section 234B of the Act by establishing procedural rules for levying monetary sanctions against DOE contractors for violations of nuclear security requirements established by law, in Executive Orders, or in DOE regulations. In 2007, the DOE Office of Security Enforcement, currently within the DOE Office of Enterprise Assessments, was established to carry out this function. (author)
[en] In support of implementation of Executive Order (EO) 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy and Economic Performance, the Hanford Site Sustainability Plan  was developed to implement strategies and activities required to achieve the prescribed goals in the EO as well as demonstrate measurable progress in environmental stewardship at the Hanford Site. The Hanford Site has made significant progress in the area of environmental stewardship through multiple initiatives to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions, despite increased demands in those areas due to accelerated cleanup work driven by ARRA funding. Future plans, contingent on available funding, include additional enhancements in the areas of fleet management, including installation of additional charging stations and continued acquisition of alternate fueled vehicles, implementation of one or more of the recommendations from the Feasibility Study on reducing GHG emissions from employee commuting, and potential diversion of solid waste from on-site landfills.

[en] This report provides information about environmental programs during 2002 at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Seasonal activities that span calendar years are also included. Production of an annual site environmental report (ASER) is a requirement established by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) for all management and operating (MandO) contractors throughout the DOE complex. SLAC is a federally-funded, research and development center with Stanford University as the MandO contractor. The most noteworthy information in this report is summarized in this section. This summary demonstrates the effective application of SLAC environmental management in meeting the site's integrated safety management system (ISMS) goals. For normal daily activities, all SLAC managers and supervisors are responsible for ensuring that proper procedures are followed so that worker safety and health are protected; the environment is protected; and compliance is ensured. Throughout 2002, SLAC focused on these activities through the SLAC management systems (described in Chapter 3). These systems were also the way SLAC approached implementing ''greening of the government'' initiatives such as Executive Order 13148. The management systems at SLAC are effective, supporting compliance with all relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. SLAC did not receive any notices of violation during 2002. In addition, many improvements were continued during 2002, in decreasing air emission rates, the storm drain system, groundwater restoration, and planning for a chemical management system to manage chemical use better
[en] This guide presents an overview of the process for successfully planning for and installing solar technology on a federal site. It is specifically targeted to managers of federal buildings and sites, contracting officers, energy and sustainability officers, and regional procurement managers. The solar project process is outlined in a concise, easy-to-understand, step-by-step format. Information includes a brief overview of legislation and executive orders related to renewable energy and the compelling reasons for implementing a solar project on a federal site. It also includes how to assess a facility to identify the best solar installation site, project recommendations and considerations to help avoid unforeseen issues, and guidance on financing and contracting options. Case studies with descriptions of successful solar deployments across multiple agencies are presented. In addition, detailed information and sample documents for specific tasks are referenced with Web links or included in the appendixes. The guide concentrates on distributed solar generation and not large, centralized solar energy generation.
