The purpose of this study of five Army buildings was to investigate current building features and construction methods and materials to optimize energy reduction and sustainability across 15 climate zones. The approach of this study was to take existing building designs and optimize the energy performance of each building using specific energy efficiency measures (individually and separately and as integrated "packages") in order to build the most energy efficient buildings possible before looking at options like renewables and cogeneration. The study also considers the impact on operations and maintenance by energy system, and considers measures to reduce indoor and outdoor potable water use.
