All energy and water data are reported as of FY 2012. The National Enforcement Investigations Center is a non-reporting facility, which means the facility is not required to submit quarterly energy and water data to EPA or the Department of Energy (DOE).
The National Enforcement Investigations Center (NEIC) occupies Building 25 of the Denver Federal Center and provides technical support for EPA enforcement and compliance assurance programs nationwide. NEIC is the first environmental forensic center in the country to be accredited by the National Forensic Science Technology Center for its environmental measurement activities in field measurements and monitoring, field sampling, and laboratory measurements. The facility was dedicated in October 2003.
Unique Environmental Features
- In November 2005, NEIC completed work on a two-year laboratory module recommissioning project. As part of this effort, EPA evaluated and modified the laboratory's heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system; rebalanced the facility's air flow; and recertified all of the laboratory's fume hoods. EPA also installed an onsite metering system, which allows the Agency to verify the facility's actual energy use. EPA expects that these actions will help NEIC reduce its annual energy consumption by approximately 10 to 20 percent, or 9.5 billion Btu, and save the facility $100,000 each year.
- EPA offsets 100 percent of the electricity consumption at NEIC with renewable energy certificates (RECs) purchased through the Agency's blanket green power contract. Learn more about EPA's blanket green power contracts.
