Abstract:

General and specific guidelines to be followed by the USAF management personnel have been developed and tabulated in this Handbook. These guidelines include, for example, establishing management structures to implement the detailed energy conservation programs, analyzing alternative energy conservation options for most of the Air Force Base facilities, family housing units, and special buildings. The guidelines are to be helpful for establishing and implementing short- and long-range plans for energy management, gaining support of all base and tenant personnel, and monitoring program progress. The Handbook covers such diverse topics as building survey, central plant identification, economic factor analysis, and human factors considerations. The attached brochure is an illustrated handout for family-housing occupants, giving simple ways and means for saving energy in the home, or apartment.
