Abstract: Army installations depend on a secure, reliable, and abundant supply of energy in order to accomplish their missions. As the range of Army activities has become increasingly complex, the Army’s dependence on energy has grown accordingly. Simultaneously, the Army has experienced growing pressure to reduce its energy consumption. In addition, environmental concerns and federal mandates introduce added incentives to minimize installation energy consumption. Because energy is such an essential support to the Army’s mission and a significant element of the Army budget, when performing Army stationing analyses, it is appropriate to consider potential climate change implications on installations’ energy usage. This report documents research conducted from Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14), FY15, and FY16 that addresses how potential climate changes might affect Army installations from an energy perspective, with emphasis on how an installation’s energy consumption might be projected to change as a result.
