Recently the Navy Shore Geospatial Energy Module went through its fourth successful promotion release in the GeoReadiness Explorer Production environment, and the hype is heating up about it, so I thought I would give everyone a little background on the program and what NSGEM can do….
Commander, Navy Installation Command (CNIC) instated the CNIC Energy Program in order to provide guidance, policy, and tools for implementing mandated energy reduction and sustainability practices. The main goals of the program (as outlined in OPNAV policy OPNAVINST 4100.5E) are:
- 50% reduction in energy consumption by 2020.
- 50% renewable energy source consumption by 2020.
- 50% net-zero participation by 2020.
