Abstract : This report examines the downstream benefits of energy management systems (EMS) at Department of Defense (DOD) installations. The DOD has mandated thorough energy metering at shore installations, but EMSs are not widespread within the DOD. Four DOD installations with EMSs serve as individual case studies in a multiple-case study analysis. This report identifies three categories of downstream benefits associated with EMSs: addressing errors that cause energy waste, identifying wasteful buildings on an installation, and identifying valuable follow-on investments. Much of the value associated with EMSs is in analyzing the data provided, and future improvements in EMS data analysis will likely yield additional benefits.
