Demonstration of the Energy Component of the Installation Master Plan Using the “Net Zero Energy Planner” Tool

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) has developed an energy master planning (EMP) concept and the automated Net Zero Planner tool to support U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) energy policy. The energy concept minimizes energy use at the building level, improves the efficiency of energy conversion and distribution, and uses energy from renewable sources to balance fossil fuel based energy to achieve a net zero fossil fuel energy status. The objective of this project was to demonstrate a holistic energy EMP concept and NZP at two defense installations, the U.S. Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, NY and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Kittery, ME.
