Abstract : An Energy Optimization Assessment was conducted at West Point, NY, as a part of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems (ECBCS) initiative to identify energy inefficiencies and wastes and propose energy-related projects with applicable funding and execution methods that could enable the installation to better meet the energy reduction requirements mandated by Executive Order 13123 and Energy Policy Act (EPAct) 2005. The study was conducted by the Energy Team, composed of the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) researchers and their subject matter experts, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). The scope of the Annex 46 Energy Optimization Assessment included a Level I study of the central energy plants and associated steam distribution systems providing heat to representative administrative buildings, laundry, dining facilities and other buildings and an analysis of their building envelopes, ventilation air systems, and lighting. The study identified 263 different energy conservation measures (ECMs) that would reduce West Point's annual energy use by up to 225,000 MMBtu/yr, or 25 percent. Most of the proposed energy conservation measures were quantified economically. These ECMs are presented in eight packages with recommendations on their implementation strategies.
