Many Department of Defense DoD facilities include climate-controlled buildings. Industrial buildings may require energy intensive heating and cooling, and these requirements may vary depending on operations. Furthermore, Corrosion Control Facilities CCFs pose multiple climate control challenges. Minimizing energy use in CCFs can be especially challenging because of the intensity and breadth of environmental control requirements including i lighting control ii generating hot water and steam iii providing breathing air iv removing hazardous air pollutants v heating vi cooling and vii meeting air flow standards, all changing with work flow. It is important to manage this energy use carefully. A Climate Management System CMS was designed to increase the ability to identify, prioritize, and communicate needed maintenance, system upgrades, and other energy savings opportunities. The CMS was installed at Building 59 B59 of Warner Robins Air Force base and evaluated for a period of one year. Analysis of the data indicate that the CMS did not change the behaviors of B59 staff and thus energy consumption did not achieve the performance targets. However, the potential energy savings at B59 are still significant, and estimated to be on the order of 17 of fan energy and 10 of chiller-energy.
