The company that bought Kenetech Energy Management Inc (KEM) has been approved to supply energy efficiency projects to the US Department of Energy. Xenergy Inc of Burlington, Massachusetts had acquired KEM, Kenetech's performance contracting arm, after Kenetech Windpower sought voluntary bankruptcy protection (Windpower Monthly, June 1996). The New England company is now eligible to submit proposals for energy services at military bases. Under the 1992 Energy Policy Act and an executive order signed by President Clinton in 1994, all federal agencies must follow programmes of energy efficiency; indeed by 2005, federal agencies must have a plan to cut energy consumption by 30% in offices and 20% in industrial facilities.
