Each year, U.S. Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) leads a highly competitive awards program.

Samuel Hagins, Energy Manager at the Amarillo VA Medical Center in Amarillo, TX was recognized with the Career Service Award. Mr. Hagins was recognized for his work in energy improvements for the U.S. Air Force and at VA over more than 20 years. His extensive efforts include projects with ice thermal storage, solar PV, sustainable building certification, and building automation.
Joselito Amancio and Felix Acevedo of Southern Nevada VA Healthcare System were recognized with a FEMP Director’s award for their contributions to FEMP’s Technical Resilience Navigator.
