Abstract : Executive Order 12003 requires that all federal activities reduce their energy consumption by 20% from fiscal year 1975 by fiscal year 1985. The Defense energy Information System (DEIS II) provides a system of measuring, reporting, and comparing energy use levels in pursuit of that goal. The use of regression and time series models of energy use were examined for application within the present DEIS II system. A data base of monthly electricity use, gross floor areas , four weather variables, and building area category identification codes were used in a framework study of 12 Naval Regional Medical Centers. Specific methodologies for model development, interpretation, and application to a control system are demonstrated and discussed. (Author)
