Abstract: The US Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) requires each Federal agency to identify facilities that account for 75% of their total energy consumption, and to assess energy conservation in 25% of these facilities annually. Also, the EISA calls for those agencies to increase energy and water efficiency in Federal buildings. To meet these requirements, energy managers must identify and develop feasible and cost-effective energy conservation projects. The first step in this process is to perform an Energy and Water Conservation Assessment, essentially a facility-level audit of the energy and water consuming equipment and systems. (However, a fullscale audit may not be appropriate at some facilities, such as those with less than 30,000 sq ft.) This document provides tools, a guide, and template assistance to Corps of Engineers Civil Works (CW) Project Offices and District Office Personnel to identify and develop energy conservation projects in facilities for which they are responsible.
