Fort Riley, KS
Fort Riley, home of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division, collaborated with Southland Energy and the U.S Army Engineering and Support Center to develop and implement energy conservation measures to reduce energy consumption and enhance resiliency. The $25 million second phase energy project will upgrade 165 facilities totaling 3.7 million square feet. Improvements include LED lighting (interior and exterior), water fixtures, HVAC, controls, expanding the existing Energy Management Control System (EMCS), infrared heating system upgrades, direct exchange system coil treatment and restoration, building envelope improvements, and retro-commissioning.

The term “smart grid” is often used as a generic term when discussing how technology is impacting the creation and use of energy, but it’s somewhat vague. Technology affects energy use in many ways and at many levels, and the phrase “smart grid” is not meaningful to most building owners. However, a related concept, the microgrid, is something that owners and property managers should become familiar with. So what do these terms actually mean? Southland Energy’s Ken Robinson explains.
