The committee recommends that the AOC develop a plan for measuring the performance of the CPP complex, using benchmarks for efficiency of operations, environmental compliance achievements, and other measures. A sample benchmarking form is shown in Appendix D. If feasible, the benchmarking of the AOC facilities should be augmented by collecting comparable data from other district energy systems, including those of the General Services Administration and the Washington Navy Yard, and collecting and implementing best-in-class practices.


As a general catchall category, the committee recommends that the AOC review the shortcomings identified in Chapter 2 that have not been explicitly addressed as recommendations for additional work, and develop an action plan to address those shortcomings it considers material.
