It is important to note that as of 2006, only 1% of U.S. manufacturing facilities had on-site energy managers and only 2% had defined energy efficiency goals despite published results showing reduction of energy costs of 20-30% through effective energy management [11, 23]. Indeed, Raytheon's own experience has been an energy efficiency improvement of 38% since the energy management program was formalized[38]. Improvements have centered around improving facilities operations such as HVAC and technology such as more energy efficient chillers[1]. Recently, Raytheon has sponsored projects which have investigated the use of renewable energy and improved datacenter operations to reduce Raytheon's carbon footprint and improve overall business sustainability [28, 39]. 2.2.2 Integrated Air Defense Center Overview The Integrated Air Defense Center (IADC) is located in Andover, Massachusetts and is IDS's largest manufacturing facility.
