Title: Reducing NCEL's energy consumption

Abstract

This is a report on the effort at the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory to reduce in-house energy consumption. Consumption was reduced in FY 1982 45% from FY 1975. The control band of temperature and humidity in the air conditioning unit allowed 22% reduction. The main building heating system was isolated with smaller boilers. Small forced-air gas heaters were put in outlying buildings to eliminate pipe systems. A central air compressor system was replaced by point-of-use units. An energy conservation board consolidated the effort and acted as a clearing house of ideas.
