Abstract:

The goal of this project was to demonstrate a whole-building performance monitoring and anomaly classification system in two DoD buildings. It was originally planned that these buildings would be at two separate facilities however, a number of logistical difficulties at the facilities considered initially led to implementation in two separate buildings at the same facility - Naval Station, Great Lakes, IL. The ultimate goal is to reduce energy consumption, peak electric demand, and water use in DoD buildings by providing actionable information to facility managers and building operators. Based on the energy savings achieved from two DoD demonstration sites 30 energy consumption reduction in Building 7230 and 20 reduction in Building 26, we expect to identify corrective actions that would reduce energy consumption by 15 to 20 per site but in an incremental manner consistent with the reductions required under both the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13423. With annual DoD expenditures of 2.5B on facility energy consumption, the savings potential can be up to 0.5B if the technology is applied across all DoD facilities. More conservatively, assuming the technology can be applied to only 10 of DoD facilities which are known to have direct digital control DDC capabilities, deployment would result in 50M of annual expenditure savings over the next three to five years.
