DESIGN ENERGY TARGET REDUCTIONS, INTERIM TECHNICAL GUIDANCE
3. Technical Guidance. Until replaced by additional specific guidance, reduce the Design Energy
Target values of enclosure (1) by 10% for all appropriate energy calculations. The reduced
Design Energy Target values are minimum standards. Use energy efficient design features and
new high efficiency products to provide facilities with the lowest life cycle costs.
Consider all avenues of energy conservation--energy efficient electrical and mechanical
equipment, products, materials, building envelope, and architectural design features.
Do not rely only on more efficient mechanical systems to meet the DETs.
4. Action. Navy engineers and architects in charge of designs shall ensure that energy
conserving designs are developed for new construction and major renovation projects.
5. Cancellation. Interim technical guidance given in reference (b) is superseded and canceled.
