Abstract : In support of Task No. 0818, Army Net Zero Prove-Out, the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE), operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), was tasked to provide the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Energy & Sustainability (ODASA[E&S]) written summaries of significant, demonstrated best practices of Net Zero Energy that can be used to guide Army installations in their pursuit of Net Zero Energy and facilitate the institutionalization of Net Zero across the Army enterprise Information required to develop these Best Practices was collected over the course of this Task 818 and the NDCEE leveraged previous work with the NZ Pilot Installations under Task 0755. During the Period of Performance (POP) of T-0755 and since the commencement of this Task, monthly collaboration calls have been held between the Army Net Zero Energy Team leaders, external resources, NDCEE and the Army Net Zero Energy Pilot Installations (recently, participation has expanded beyond the pilot installations). These monthly calls accounted for the majority of Best Practices collected and were also included in the NZ Implementation Guide. The enclosed brochure found at Appendix A is intended to facilitate a comprehensive perspective for the institutionalization of NZ across the Army and aid in the transition of the NZ Pilot Installation Initiative concepts to a wider Army audience.
