District's Green Innovation Award Winners
USACE’s Green Innovation Award winners Rich Gifaldi, left, the district’s sustainable engineering manager, and Phil Cohen, former district Planning Section chief and current retired annuitant, developed a holistic approach to net-zero installation planning, which is transferable to DoD installations worldwide. The approach creates a strategic road map for installations to plan and track their progress toward net zero. The first net-zero planning project was executed at Sembach Installation, Germany in fiscal year 2012. Today additional installations have taken advantage of this innovative planning and audit process: U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria Vicenza Military Community United States Army Garrison Stuttgart, Germany Garrison Wiesbaden Future work is planned for Romania in fiscal year 2016. Gifaldi and Cohen will now compete in The White House's GreenGov competition.
