2 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Overview Preservation of Resources Reducing Consumption Achieving Sustainability Comments/Questions

3 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Preservation of Resources The mission of the Department of Defense is more than aircraft, guns and missiles. Part of the defense job is protecting the land, waters, timber, and wildlife – the priceless natural resources that make this great nation of ours worth defending. General Thomas D. White Air Force Chief of Staff,

4 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Preservation of Resources Environmental Stewardship on Display at McGuire Reduced water consumption by 55% (over 300 MGY) since 1993 Reduced hazardous waste disposal and hazardous material purchases by over 75% since 1996 Recovered/recycled ~60,000 gallons of aircraft deicing fluid Recycled 557 tons of scrap steel, cardboard, paper, cans and glass on base and 246 tons in housing; over $80K of green items were purchased on base Received 17 Annual Tree City Awards Removed 28 Underground Storage Tanks and replaced 23 USTs with ASTs; removed 12 Oil Water Separators and replaced 10 more

7 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence McGuire AFB: Energy Neutral by 2015? Key Air Mobility Command airbase on East Coast Designated one of two AF Model Energy Bases Set the ambitious goal to be off the grid by 2015 Can we do it given: Historically the USAF is an energy consumer, not producer? Geographic location? Abundance of old, inefficient legacy infrastructure? Limited resources?

8 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Model Energy Base Make energy a consideration in all we do. – Hon. Michael W. Wynne, Secretary of the Air Force Make energy a consideration in all we do. – Hon. Michael W. Wynne, Secretary of the Air Force In April 2007, AF designated McGuire AFB and Barksdale AFB Model Energy Bases In April 2007, AF designated McGuire AFB and Barksdale AFB Model Energy Bases Serve as platforms for applying innovative and transformational energy concepts/initiatives Serve as platforms for applying innovative and transformational energy concepts/initiatives Establish clear baselines and monitor results Establish clear baselines and monitor results Fully apply AFSO 21 concepts to energy Fully apply AFSO 21 concepts to energy Focus on infrastructure, vehicles, fuels, aircraft ops, cargo ops Focus on infrastructure, vehicles, fuels, aircraft ops, cargo ops Make energy awareness part of culture Make energy awareness part of culture Apply successful initiatives across the Air Force Apply successful initiatives across the Air Force

9 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Additional Energy Goals 50% Decrease in Consumption by 2011; 60% by 2013 (From 2003 Baseline) 50% Decrease in Consumption by 2011; 60% by 2013 (From 2003 Baseline) McGuire Reduction - 18% through 2008 McGuire Reduction - 18% through 2008 Energy Awareness and Off-the-Shelf Solutions Energy Awareness and Off-the-Shelf Solutions 5% From Renewable Sources by 2011; 10% by % From Renewable Sources by 2011; 10% by 2013 Demo 25 Facilities by 2011; 30 by 2013 Demo 25 Facilities by 2011; 30 by 2013 $4.3M in FY09 Funding to Demo 19 Facilities $4.3M in FY09 Funding to Demo 19 Facilities Efficiency Certification for All New Facilities; Minimum Silver; One Gold by 2013 Efficiency Certification for All New Facilities; Minimum Silver; One Gold by 2013 One Energy Neutral Facility by 2011; 5 by 2013 One Energy Neutral Facility by 2011; 5 by 2013

10 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Solutions: Work on our Infrastructure Decrease Consumption Upgrade and Rebuild Create New PartnershipsAcquire New Technologies Industry/Local Universities/Local Government Think Globally, But Act Locally

12 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence McGuire Strategic Energy Pathway Potential Energy Neutral Facilities: Potential Energy Neutral Facilities: Future Joint Base Headquarters Facility Material Control and Admin Facility Material Control and Admin Facility Visitors Welcome Center

13 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Technologies for Energy Neutral Facilities Proposed Technologies for Energy Neutral Facilities: Proposed Technologies for Energy Neutral Facilities: Geothermal Bldg Envelope Insulation (Min R20) - Solar Thermal - Solar Hot Water - Hi-Efficiency Lighting - DayLighting - Occupancy Sensors Solar Photovoltaic

14 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence New Energy Projects Under Development Power Purchase Agreement Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Project – 16 Acres Biomass Project(s) Partnership with Stevens Institute Funded Projects Solar Rooftop Projects – Library/Med Clinic Waste Oil Burner Daylight Harvesting HVAC Replacements/Recommissioning Smart Meters Unfunded Projects Solar/Photovoltaic (PV) Projects Geothermal, Wind, Small Nuclear Plant?

15 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Conclusions and Lessons Learned McGuire Strategic Energy Plan a work in progress The problem is bigger than one person, one aircraft, one base, one command, one Air Force… Best time to maximize energy saving potential is during initial design – build it in up front Sustaining typically involves upfront investment Take advantage of the energy resources at hand Energy has links to (and consequences on) activities, operations, and resources (Sustainability = Energy Security)

16 Americas Premier Joint Warfighting Base and Air Mobility Center of Excellence Closing Remarks McGuire Leading the Way on Resource Preservation – Becoming Focal Point for New Initiatives Across DOD Transitioning from Planning to Action; Postured for Significant Increase in Resources Energy Conservation Begins at Home
