Abstract: This work reviewed the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) stock of buildings that has either been declared historical or deemed eligible for historic building status. Six buildings at Fort Sill, OK, that represent commonly found buildings were selected to be studied for potential Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs). Three historic buildings at Fort Bliss were also included in the analysis. Computer models of the buildings energy use were developed and used to estimate the potential energy savings of the various EEMs. Costs for the EEMs were estimated, simple paybacks were calculated, and the results were extrapolated to the 15 U.S. climate zones and summarized. A list of EEMs that may be applicable to historic buildings and a general guide to their effectiveness in various climates was developed.
