3 Sustainable Development: “…development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” --World Commission on Environmental Development (Bruntland, 1987)

4 2011 ADC WINTER FORUM | PAGE 4 Navy achieved Net Zero Energy at China Lake in 1987

5 2011 ADC WINTER FORUM | PAGE 5 Army demonstration Net Zero Energy FOB at Fort Irwin

6 3 INS Border Patrol Stations, Maine near Canadian Border Secure facilities with detention areas Helipads with multi- fuel storage and leak prevention Urgent and scrutinized

7 First USACE LEED Principle Based Design- Started 2002 Fulfilled Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Needs Won Regional CMAA Award 2007

8 Developed one building design Energy efficient buildings and equipment Featured Low Impact Development (LID) methods for stormwater Exemplary case study of cold region LID application

9 Lexington, MA DPW

10 Green Roof Design Porous Pavement Design Wetland Restoration Design Stormwater Management Water Quality Treatment Water Harvesting Native Plantings Sustainability Site/Civil Design

11 Paving Specs and QA Subsurface Storage and Infiltration Combined Measures

12 Planning and Directing Flow Raingardens for Public Outreach Stormwater Wetlands along Stream Corridor

13 Re-Use of water for truck washing and irrigation Cleansed stormwater enters impaired brook Green roof, porous paving, raingardens, rainbarrels, infiltraltration Outdoor classroom enlightens students, town engineers, contractors, and public visiting offices Water Footprint Management and Community Outreach

14 E.O : Goals Requires that 95% of all applicable procurement contracts will meet sustainability requirements Requires 15% of buildings meet the Guiding Principles for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings by 2015 Design all new Federal buildings which begin the planning process by 2020 to achieve zero-net energy by 2030 Pursue cost-effective & innovative strategies, such as highly reflective & vegetated roofs Achieve 30% reduction in vehicle fleet petroleum use by 2020 Achieve 26% reduction in potable & 20% reduction in industrial, landscaping, & agricultural water consumption by 2020 Comply with new EPA stormwater management guidance Achieve 50% recycling & waste diversion by 2015 The new executive order requires agencies to meet sustainability targets, including:

15 DOD Sustainability Implementation Challenges RFP – Proposal – Award Process: Lacks clarity on sustainability focus and does not welcome contractor innovations MILCON and O&M: Funding streams are stove piped preventing complete capital asset lifecycle cost balancing Sustainability should be applied from project inception to design to procurement and O&M and, eventually, decommissioning—but rarely is! SAME Sustainability Track Executive Forum 2009

16 SAME Sustainability Track– Way Ahead Identify regionally specific pilot projects to serve as demonstration of best practices. –Alternative Delivery methods –Renewable energy generation –High-performance buildings –Documented business cases Develop training and outreach program in order to share lessons learned and best practices in order to achieve culture change SAME Sustainability Track Executive Forum 2009

17 Path Forward Energy efficiency must continue as a priority for new buildings and renovations Linkage between water use, waste handling patterns, and energy efficiency must be addressed better Renewable power generation must be addressed at installation and regional levels Construction and O&M must be coordinated Life Cycle Costing methods must be improved Master Plans must establish system-scale strategies that inform building-specific actions

18 Utility Energy Efficiency / Demand Reduction Commercial / Industrial Program Design & Implementation –Custom, Prescriptive, New Construction, Retro-commissioning, Demand Credit, Critical Peak Pricing, & Interruptible Tariff programs – Over 1000 GWh Annual Energy Savings Installed – Hundreds of trade allies and partners Efficiency Measures – Air Abatement – Compressed Air – HVAC – Motors – Pumps – Lighting – Refrigeration – Hydraulics – Waste Heat – Primary & Secondary Process

19 Building Shell Thermal Integrity Air Sealing exterior surfaces Adding Insulation Sealing Ducts Test in-test out Save up to 10% of total Energy Bill by:

20 Water Efficiency and Conservation Replacing inefficient fixtures Reducing irrigation demand Capture and re-use water from chiller, boilers, and wastewater treatment Rain Gardens and Bioswales Porous paving Rainwater harvesting and re-use Green roof systems Conserve water by:
