Abstract:

This study investigated the possibility of creating an energy accounting system based on currently identified objectives. The initial focus was to determine if such a system would be useful. Conditions which led to the energy crises in the 1970s still exist and indicators show that the United States is more dependent upon foreign oil than at any time in the past. There was also a failure to meet the 1985 energy reduction goal of 20. Adding to the problem is escalating pressure to trim the federal budget. The greatest pressure is on the Department of Defense, so there is a need to improve the methods used to determine how to decrease facility energy consumption. It was found that new systems need to decrease the time required to prepare reports, allow for customized reports, and provide a method for upward reporting to contract data. The result of this study showed that it was possible to create such a system, but given the tools currently available not all of the objectives were obtainable.
