The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) as a whole, and each of the military branches, have taken strong leadership in setting ambitious goals for energy independence and in deploying innovative energy technology to meet specific targets. This article discusses government mandates and funding for energy efficiency, and discusses how proper HVAC is key to improving energy efficiency or buildings. To help Langley Air Force Base (AFB) achieve DOD energy savings initiatives, a multi-year project addressing energy efficiency was developed and implemented.
