The military is facing a significant issue of increasing fuel cost to deploy troops overseas and establish and maintain Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) or outposts. To help reduce energy consumption, transportation, and cost an Energy Resource Planning Tool (ERPT) is needed. This ERPT will help the military in making crucial decisions about the optimal shelter and equipment configuration for their Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) prior to deployment. To make this tool effective, load profile data of shelters needs to be simulated and uploaded into a database, so that it can be easily available when outposts need to be configured and optimized with respect to energy consumption for a given set of constraints.
