Abstract : Executive Order (EO) 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance expanded on the energy reduction and environmental performance requirements of EO 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management. EO 13514 requires Federal agencies to set a Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction goal for fiscal year 2020 (FY20) based on an FY08 baseline. US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Civil Works projects include many common facility energy consumers such as office space, laboratory space, and visitor centers that are the focus of energy and GHG reduction strategies by many organizations. These Goal Subject (GS) energy consuming facilities support building operations and do not include facilities such as locks and dams and outdoor lighting, which are termed Goal Excluded (GE) facilities. USACE has many GE and non-building GHG emission sources such as those found at locks and dams; hydropower facilities; large pumping plants; fish barriers; canals, channels, harbors, and other navigation waterways; as well as docked vessels. This report documents a data analysis of GE energy consumption and GHG emissions and opportunities for reducing energy usage and GHG emissions based on site visits to three of these Civil Works project types.
