Abstract:

Fossil fuel dependence results in exponential increase in convoy casualty risk. More likely to spend money on hardware solution than training solution for base camps, even if either approach would have the same effect on energy consumption. Renewable energy only generates small percentage of power requirements 10. Lack of incentive for individual units to conserve energy. Energy-efficient technology with inefficient operators loses much of potential benefit. Structures and equipment do not perform to rating standard they were designed due to suboptimal human energy-related behavior. 2008 OSD Power Surety Task Force PSTF Fort Belvoir housing construction project study. Four houses built with varying degrees of energy efficiency ranging from standard construction to highly insulated house with motion sensors, better windows, rooftop solar system, etc. Results Standard first house had the most energy efficient consumption, High-efficiency fourth house had the least energy-efficient consumption.
