Review Strawman Roadmaps and Potential Technology Projectsfor Sustainable Installations Initiative Sustainable Transportation Tom Broadwater National Defense Center for Environmental Excellence
A Sustainable Installation... • Optimizes military training • Provides for the well-being of soldiers and families • Great Facilities • Strong cultural/community services • Has a mutually-beneficial relationship with the local community • Is life-cycle cost-effective to operate • Systematically decreases its dependence: • on fossil fuels and mining; • on non-biodegradable and toxic compounds; • Does not use resources faster than nature can regenerate them; • Operates within its “fair share” of earth’s resources
Purposeof Sustainable Installations Initiative (SII) Technology Workshop Series The ultimate deliverables from a series of three workshops will be: • Technology roadmaps that demonstrate which existing technologies can be applied, in what order, and at what cost benefit to reach the 25-year sustainability goals established by the installations, • Potential demonstration projects with partnering agencies; and • Identification of gaps in existing organizational framework and technologies (needs statements).
Sustainable Installations InitiativeWorkshop Series • Installation Focus • Installations with Established/Mature Sustainability Programs • Potential Expansion to other Installations as Programs Mature Outcome You Are Here • Workshop #1 • Army Research Office • April 28, 2005 • Technology Roadmap Hierarchy • Technology Needs Baseline Outcome • Potential Demonstration Projects • Near-, mid-, and long-term (R&D) Needs • Initial Technology Roadmap • Who: Army “Pilot” Sustainability Planners, IMA, ACSIM, ODEP, ARO, Others • What: Use Findings of “Pilot” Assessment Database and Installation Data Calls as a Starting Point for Baseline (Recent ISP Data) • Workshop #2 • DoD/EPA Region 4 Conference • June 29-30, 2005 • Technology Starts • Technology Roadmap(s) • Demonstration Projects for NDCEE • Workshop #3 • Tentative Fort Bragg • Fall 2005 • What: Use Roadmap Hierarchy and Technology Needs Baseline to Align Potential Demonstration Opportunities with Installation Objectives • Who: Army “Pilot” Sustainability Planners and other interests, DOD, EPA, DOE, State, Industry Technology Providers • Who: Federal Agency & Industry Technology Experts, Army “Pilot” Sustainability Planners & HQ Personnel • What: Use Initial Roadmap & Populate Requirements (near through long term) • Coordinated Approach • Matching Vetted Technology Needs with Solution Providers • Facilitating a Process Aligned with RDT&E Outcome
Purposeof SII Technology Workshop #2 The deliverables that this workshop needs to develop are: (1) Next iteration of installation sustainability technology roadmaps, (2) High priority potential technology field demonstration projects, and (3) Identification of potential technology partners that support installation sustainability goals and strategies.
