Energy Conservation in Army Industrial Facilities
MetadataShow full item record
The United States Army Materiel Development and Readiness Command (DARCOM) is responsible for the life cycle functions for all assigned materiel systems of the United States Army and Department of Defense agencies. DARCOM installations account for approximately 19 percent of the Army's total energy consumption (approximately 44 million barrels of oil equivalent) and have reduced energy consumption approximately 26 percent below FY 75 levels. Highlights of the program include a comprehensive energy audit program, process energy studies, several different energy capital investment programs, and an aggressive energy awareness program. This paper describes the program with particular emphasis on the ongoing effort to establish relationships between key production parameters and energy consumption throughout the command. This will enable DARCOM to forecast future energy requirements and to determine the effectiveness of the conservation program in a dynamic industrial environment.
