dc.descriptionAbstract: Each year, U.S Air Force buildings waste millions of dollars’ in energy lost through leaks in building envelopes. Identifying the source of this wasted energy has historically been time consuming and prohibitively expensive for large-scale energy analysis. This work used an independently developed drive-by thermal imaging solution that can enable the Air Force to achieve cost-effective energy efficiency at much greater scale than other commercially available techniques of measuring energy loss due to envelope inefficiencies from the built environment. A multi-sensor hardware device attached to the roof of a customized vehicle was used to rapidly scan hundreds of buildings in a short period of time. At Scott Air Force Base, the unit identified over 3,000 distinct building feature components (doors, windows, soffits, etc.) on buildings across the base. These features were categorized by type and surface temperature to provide an in-depth analysis of each building’s envelope energy profile. This report includes an in-depth analysis of 30 buildings at this installation, recommends specific energy conservation measures (ECMs), and quantifies significant potential return on investment.-
