ENERGY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE

 

Executive Order 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade, requires that all federal agencies meet specific reductions in energy and water consumption, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Further, agencies must demonstrate progress in renewable energy generation, building performance, and metering initiatives.

Each year, federal agencies are required to both satisfy, and report, performance toward numerous sustainability goals. Year-after-year, the Coast Guard has met or exceeded statutory requirements. In FY2016, the Coast Guard accomplished the following:

  • The Coast Guard achieved a 2.45% reduction in facility energy intensity from baseline (FY 2015), missing the FY 2016 statutory goal by 0.05%.

  • The Coast Guard achieved a 20.7% reduction in facility water intensity from baseline, exceeding the FY 2014 statutory goal by 2.7%.

  • In line with the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) 2007, the Coast Guard is beginning to add advanced water meters to its infrastructure. At the end of FY 2016, the Coast Guard had 73 advanced water meters installed.

  • The Coast Guard used 4.5% of its total electricity and 2.8% of its total energy from renewable sources, falling short of the FY 2016 statutory goals by 5.5% and 7.2%, respectively.

  • The Coast Guard achieved 100% installation of advanced electricity meters, meeting the FY 2016 statutory requirement.

  • Since 2007, all new Coast Guard building designs are 30% more energy-efficient than code. This achievement meets the FY 2016 statutory goal.

  • The Coast Guard achieved a 35% reduction of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions from baseline, exceeding goals outlined for FY 2020 in the Coast Guard OSPP by 18%.

  • The Coast Guard achieved a 40% reduction of Scope 3 GHG emissions from baseline, exceeding goals outlined for FY 2020 in the Coast Guard OSPP by 35.5%.
