Net Zero Energy NC National Guard InitiativesEffective energy conservation requires command emphasis, sensible near-term milestones,and use of cutting edge technologies to achieve long-term success.Current NC National Guard Initiatives1. Annual Conservation Policy establishes over-arching vision: “NCNG personnelwill….integrate conservation efforts into “day-to-day” operations and missions, to the extentthat missions allow.” Building occupant behavior modification is key.2. Near-term electricity and fossil fuel goals: 2012 -- 5% reduction. 2013 -- 10% reduction.6.Field units receive monthly, quarterly, and annual feedback to track actual results.7.Retrofit Options (older infrastructure) – super-insulation, weatherization; replacingobsolete building systems with high efficiency windows, HVAC equipment, and lighting.8.Net Zero Energy Strategies (new construction) – LEED-based design from inception,passive solar, energy recovery devices, and advanced building envelope measures.
Net Zero Energy NC National Guard Future NeedsWe use a mix of supply-side and demand-side strategies to stretch our budget as far aspossible. Some ambitious efforts may require additional investment*.Future Improvement Strategies/Needs (NC National Guard)5.Supply-Side Energy Strategies: a. Review utility accounts to ensure we qualify for lowest cost rate schedule. b. Take advantage of special utility company rebates or discount programs. c. Analyze utility bills for unexpected rate fluctuations.6.Demand-Side Energy Strategies: a. Maximize number of retrofit projects each fiscal year.* - Equipment swap-out (highest efficiency/Energy Star justified by LCCA). - Best lighting components suited for our uses. - Thorough building envelope, weatherization, and super-insulation upgrades. - Energy audits to pinpoint waste, and to explore energy recovery options. b. EVERY new construction project will follow LEED energy efficiency approach.* - Extraordinary focus on innovation – esp. energy capture/generation ideas. - Utilize every traditional passive solar & building envelope energy approach.
