Energy efficiency to be delivered to US Army, Navy

Army intelligence 10 Jan 2012

Retroficiency and Sain Engineering Associates (SEA) have formed a partnership to identify and deliver massive energy efficiency saving opportunities to the U.S. Army and Navy.

Through the agreement, SEA will use Retroficiency's Building Efficiency Intelligence platform to deliver about 640 on-site energy audits at U.S. Army and Navy buildings in multiple regions around the world over the next year.

In 2012, the Department of the U.S. Navy announced energy goals to improve its energy security, increase energy dependence and help lead the nation towards a clean energy economy. One of the primary goals included making half of all Navy bases, stations and schools net-zero-energy by 2020.

To continue to help the U.S. Navy achieve these goals, and to support the U.S. Army on similar energy efficiency initiatives, SEA will use Automated Energy Audit (AEA), a software solution available on Retroficiency's Building Efficiency Intelligence platform, to streamline data collection and management, energy efficiency measure evaluation and report generation.

AEA enables users to perform comprehensive, accurate building audits in up to 80 percent less time and expense compared with equivalent traditional methods. SEA, an energy consulting firm and Inc. 5000 company, is currently conducting the audits and will complete the project by Q3 2014.

AEA will also support SEA in energy master planning by providing a more standardized, automated platform for long-term capital planning and project development at both the portfolio and building levels. It will allow SEA and its customers to easily explore opportunities for different projects across a portfolio, as well as to re-evaluate buildings for new opportunities over time.
