• Seven previous Administrations – going back to President Nixon, who
  warned of the dangers of our nation’s growing reliance on foreign oil. It
  was 1973 when President Nixon set a national goal of developing the
  ability to “meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign
  sources.” He called it Project Independence, and predicted meeting that
  goal within seven years.

• Marketplace, Tuesday, July 15, 2008
  Twenty-nine years ago today, President Jimmy Carter told Americans that
  the energy crisis was “a clear and present danger to our nation” and drew
  out a plan to address it.

    Oil Addiction: Fueling Our Enemies

Jonathan Powers, Truman National Security Project February 17, 2010

• The U.S. sends approximately one billion dollars a day overseas to import
  oil. While this figure is staggering by itself, the dangerous implications of
  our addiction are even more pronounced when analyzing where our
  money goes – and whom it helps to support.
• Examine what the true costs of our oil addiction meant during the year
  2008:1
   – One Billion Dollars a Day Spent on Foreign Oil:
   – Our Annual Oil Debt Is Greater than Our Trade Deficit with China: Our
       petroleum imports created a $386 billion U.S. trade deficit in 2008,
       versus a $266 billion deficit with China. This national debt is a drain on
       our economy and an anchor on our economic growth.

The Navy Strike on Energy Use
8:47 AM Monday May 9, 2011 |

Eighteen months ago, the U.S. Navy announced it
would source roughly half of its energy from
alternative sources by 2020. Since then, the Navy
has launched a number of innovative green projects,
such as switching some Marine forward bases in
Afghanistan from fossil fuels to solar power.

The primary goal is a focus toward net zero and when
we talk about net zero, it's not only net zero energy,
but it's net zero energy, water, and waste. When you
look at the term "net zero" or a hierarchy of net zero
you must start with reduction, then progress through
repurposing, recycling, energy recovery, disposal
being the last.

One of the Nation's Largest Energy Users Has Ambitious Plans
to Cut Back
DINA FINE MARON of ClimateWirePublished: May 28, 2010A (NYT)



As the Air Force seeks to realize both its own and federally
mandated energy efficiency goals, its top energy official is
pressing for better ways to measure progress. Energy needs at
military installations, which account for about 40 percent of
the Defense Department's greenhouse gas emissions, are
expected to balloon as thousands of troops return to home
bases from Iraq and Afghanistan.

   DoD ALTERNATIVE / RENEWABLE ENERGY?
... The earth is finite. Fossil fuels are not renewable. In this respect
our energy base differs from that of all earlier civilizations. They
could have maintained their energy supply by careful cultivation.
We cannot. Fuel that has been burned is gone forever.

In the face of the basic fact that fossil fuel reserves are finite, the
exact length of time these reserves will last is important in only
one respect: the longer they last, the more time do we have, to
invent ways of living off renewable or substitute energy sources
and to adjust our economy to the vast changes which we can
expect from such a shift.

      Represents more than 50% of the
       nation’s wealth
      New construction and renovation activity
       amounts to over $800 billion
       annually
      Responsible for13% of the GDP
      Employs over  ten million people (5%

Today’s Realities
      New construction outlook remains weak
      Construction sector unemployment around 20%
      Buildings responsible for 42% of U.S. energy
       consumption; building energy use projected to grow
          $422 billion annual energy costs
          70% of U.S. electricity consumption
          39% of U.S. CO2 emissions

      To remain competitive and profitable we must reshape
       the efficiency of our building sector

   Building Codes for High-
    Performance Buildings

           Building Codes:
 Developed Nationally, Adopted Locally
• All 50 States adopt the International Building Code (IBC) a
  model code from the Intl. Code Council. Covers all aspects
  of commercial buildings: structural integrity, life safety, exit
  requirements, plumbing, HVAC, electric, lighting, insulation,
  materials, etc. (other Code Council model codes cover
  residential, zoning, existing buildings, etc.)
• State and local building officials, as well as industry,
  participate and vote on the development of Code Council
  model codes & they are revised and republished by the
  Code Council every 3 years. Jurisdictions often modify the
  model code, to meet local circumstances and concerns.
• IBC insures structural and systems integrity and life safety:
  an essential starting point for High Performance buildings.

International Green Construction Code
                (IGCC)
• Now going through its final development
  phase, the IGCC is coordinated and consistent
  with the IBC.
• Developed in partnership w/AIA, ASTM,
  USGBC, ASHRAE, and IES, it also incorporates
  the ASHRAE 189.1-2009 Standard for the
  Design of High-Performance Green Buildings,
  as a compliance option.

     International Green Construction
               Code (IGCC)
 An  Adoptable, Useable and Enforceable code
 Intended to reduce the negative impacts of the built
  environment on the natural environment
 Addresses
     Conservation of:   Natural Resources, Materials, Energy, Water
       Air & indoor environmental quality
       Owner education


   Has been adopted (as an optional code) by Maryland,
    Florida, Rhode Island, and by several cities and at least one
    tribal government.
