Abstract : Defense Energy Program Memorandum (DEPPM) 91-2 and Executive Order 12759 assign energy efficiency goals for Federal facilities for Fiscal Year 2000 (FYOO) as compared to base year FY85. Each Depanment of Defense (DOD) component is directed to prescribe policies and establish appropriate measures to improve energy efficiency of the aggregate of its industrial energy-consuming facilities by at least 20 percent in FYOO in comparison to FY85. In most instances, these new energy and environmental directives exceed the performance capabilities of DOD's installed industrial technologies. (The vast majority of DOD industrial activities use technologies that are over 40 years old.) Cost-effective compliance with these directives in the existing DOD industrial base requires a thorough evaluation of DOD industrial activities and their potential for improvements. This project began that evaluation and identified a wide range of low-cost energy and pollution reduction opportunities and energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) at DOD industrial facilities in which reduced energy consumption can, via energy efficiency and operational improvements, simultaneously and significantly reduce pollutant emissions at DOD industrial facilities within the Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
