The Oakland Federal Building in Oakland, CA, was designed to be as energy efficient as possible. Built in 1993, the 1,057,383 square-foot facility achieved the ENERGY STAR Label for Buildings without any additional energy efficiency retrofits or improvements, a tribute to good building design.

"The building was designed to be energy efficient with lots of help from Pacific Gas & Electricity," says Edgar Gray of the General Services Administration (GSA), the Federal agency that administers the building. "The building is both energy efficient and comfortable for our tenants." The Oakland Federal Building provides offices for a number of agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Energy, and the Veterans Administration. All told, more than 2,000 Federal employees work in the building.

Among the energy-efficient equipment incorporated in the design of the building are T-8 fluorescent lamps with electronic ballasts, optical reflectors on the lighting fixtures, variable frequency drives on the air handling units and chillers, and dual duct heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems. In addition, an Energy Management System(EMS) was installed to tightly control the functions of the building's main energy-using equipment.
