This report discusses the application of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratorys End-use Disaggregation Algorithm EDA to a Department of Defense DOD installation and presents hourly reconciled end-use data for all major building types and end uses. The goals of the project were to 1 develop an energy database by building type and by end use for DOD facilities and 2 to enhance the DOD energy offices ability to track energy use by end use. The project was pilot tested at Fort Hood, Texas, which was determined to have representative samples of nearly all the major building types in use on DOD installations. The EDA was applied to 10 separate feeders from the three substations at the Fort. The results from the analyses of these 10 feeders were extrapolated to estimate energy use by end use for the entire installation and validate the results with the independent Texas Utility billing data for electricity use for the installation. The results show, among other findings, that administration, residential, and barracks buildings are the largest consumers of electricity for a total of 250 GWh per year 74 percent of the Forts annual consumption of 330 GWh.
