Title: Holistic Energy Management Yields Cost Savings and Resilience Benefits for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy

Abstract

As the U.S. Coast Guard's third largest energy consumer, the 86-year-old Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, was ripe for an energy management overhaul. That overdue overhaul was made possible by the largest utility energy service contract (UESC) in U.S. Department of Homeland Security history. Awarded in September 2017, the $72.6 million contract provided for $39 million in capital improvements and is expected to cut total energy costs by 80% - more than $2 million - each year. On-site generation of 82% of the site's electricity needs will dramatically improve site-wide resilience, and savings generated from implementation of the project will pay for all project costs. The UESC project team developed and executed an energy management project to meet several priority objectives, including implementing essential infrastructure improvements, increasing reliability, and enhancing resilience - and engaged the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Utility Partnerships Program for project assistance.
