Unformatted text preview: ovative and effective system that has attained impressive results compared to peer organizations. 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. Improvements have centered
around improving facilities operations such as HVAC and technology such as more energy efficient
chillers. 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. The IADC has a footprint of 1.2 million sq...
