U.S. DOD pursuing efficiency to reduce $4 billion energy bill

The U.S. Defense Department is pursuing energy efficiency and other measures to lower its energy bill and increase its energy security, officials told the U.S. House Armed Services Committee in late March. The department spends $4 billion a year on energy, Dorothy Robyn, deputy undersecretary of defense for installations and environment, testified at the hearing on planned energy investments. DOD operates more than 300,000 buildings, which have an environmental footprint six times greater than the General Services Administration and three times larger than Walmart, Robyn said.

Staying Dry & Comfortable With Liquid Desiccants

Let a scientist with experience both at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and on the manufacturer side discuss the possibilities of a newer dehumidification technology within the framework of the same old moisture challenges.
In the summer, conventional air-conditioning systems in buildings are challenged to meet peak humidity loads. Over time, buildings have reduced their heat (sensible) load, but have done less to reduce their moisture (latent) load. As a result, this moisture load can become too large for conventional air-conditioning systems to handle.
