In the early 2000s, MacDill AFB saw an exponential increase in both personnel and electronic equipment due to its instrumental role in the war against terror. As a result, energy consumption skyrocketed, leading to increased operational costs for the Department of Defense. To combat this growing crisis, leadership at MacDill AFB partnered with the Akima portfolio of companies to implement new energy savings tools with a goal of reducing consumption by at least one percent annually.
