Abstract:

This report describes energy consumption data obtained between December 1976 and March 1977 for 45 Army buildings being monitored at Fort Belvoir, VA, Fort Carson, CO, and Fort Hood, TX, as part of a study being conducted to identify energy consumption patterns at fixed Army facilities. The 45 buildings represent six of the major energy consumer groups found on Army installations family housing, troop housing, administrationtraining buildings, productionmaintenance buildings, medicaldental buidlings, and community support facilities. This report provides potential users of energy data with preliminary findings and indicates the formats and analysis techniques which will be used in a full-year energy-consumption data report to be published in FY78. Consumption data for electrical energy and fossil fuels are presented as monthly energy-consumption totals for the six energy consumer groups. The electrical data for each building are analyzed by computing the daily usage per unit area. The heating energy use for various buildings is compared by computing the energy used per unit area per heating-degree day. Typical daily and monthly usage profiles are presented for each energy consumer group. Author
