This course connects the key elements of installation energy/water planning and master planning through use of modeling tools. The goal of the course is to make planners more effective by providing them with an understanding of the role of master planning in achieving sustainability and resiliency goals, by learning how to quantify impacts. Students will learn how to use the USACE developed SMPl/Net Zero Planner tool to identify resilient solutions in conjunction with master planning. For non-planners, this course provides linkages to achieve sustainable, resilient installations and allows professionals to use automated modeling tools to quantify impacts.

Through lectures, case studies, group interaction, and practical exercises, this course will (a) provide an overview of sustainable, energy efficient, resilient master planning principles as cited in Army and DoD Master Planning policies; (b) through application modeling techniques, demonstrate and understand to quantify energy and water reliability impacts and explain how it impacts installation master planning; (c) emphasize that master planning is a professional capability requiring close collaboration and facilitation with stakeholders, and (d) present an overview of sustainable development and resiliency concepts. The class provides the knowledge and modeling techniques necessary to produce a Sustainability Component Plan/Installation energy Plan as a complement to a master plan. This class provides the participants with the knowledge and skills needed to engage in effective sustainable, resilient master planning for installations and other federal properties.

This course has no prerequisite. While this course builds on knowledge from Course 258 (Master Planning Energy & Sustainability), it is not necessary to have completed that course. It is appropriate for planners, architects, landscape architects, project managers, engineers, historic preservation experts, and Real Property Specialists working at Army and DoD installations, Corps of Engineers districts, NASA centers, other federal agencies, the general public, and the consulting community. Nominees serving as federal employees must be assigned to GS-05 or above and associated with installation master planning and management support functions at DoD installations, MACOMs, MSCs, USAR, RSCs, USACE divisions/districts, and/or a supporting contractor or equivalent experience with other DoD and federal agencies. Work in other areas such as historical preservation, environmental management, and project management would serve as suitable experience. The class is also appropriate for planners in cities and towns and meets AICP certification for continuing education. Students need to bring a laptop to the course. To receive a certificate of completion, students are required to attend the entire course so leaving early is not allowed by ULC policy.
