Energy Efficiency

More than 350 energy-efficiency projects at our facilities are complete or in process such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) improvements, retro commissioning activities, and deploying demand analysis to reduce peak loads.  This led to:

  • Reduced carbon emissions by 18% from 2010-2013, with an annual reduction of 9% from 2012-2013  
  • Reduced usage of energy by 12% from 2010-2013, with an annual reduction of 3% from 2012-2013
  • 2013 energy reduction and water conservation efforts contributed approximately $19 million in lowered annualized operating expenses.

Our Sustainability Report and our 2013 CDP Report detail our energy efficiency and carbon reduction programs and how we are helping our external customers achieve their energy reduction goals.

In addition to greenhouse gas emissions reported through the CDP, Lockheed Martin facilities that meet reporting thresholds also report air emissions information including nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides
 and other significant air emissions to EPA or state counterparts.  

Energy Reduction Case Study
Employees at our Grand Prairie, Texas, site have a systems approach to identifying energy reduction projects and use a Lockheed Martin-developed tool to identify potential HVAC improvements. In one year, the site's electrical energy usage fell by approximately 14%, resulting in a cost avoidance of $420,000. We intend to expand the use of this tool across the Corporation.
