This Energy Engineering Analysis covering Increments D, E and F contains technical and economic analyses for cogeneration, central boiler plant coal conversion, engine test cell heat recovery, waste oil recovery, package boiler for summer use and Facilities Engineer conservation measures. This report is a supplement to previous work by SSVK involving buildings, utilities and energy distribution systems which was accomplished under Increments A, B and G. The purpose of this analysis is to develop a systematic program of projects that will result in energy consumption reductions in compliance with the stated goals of the Army Facilities Energy Plan. A Reduce Army installation and active energy consumption by 25 of that consumed in FY75 as the base year. B Reduce average annual energy consumption per gross square foot of floor area by 20 in existing facilities compared to FY75 as the base year. At least 12 of the energy consumption reduced in existing buildings shall be accomplished through energy conservation projects under the Energy Conservation Investment Program ECIP. C Reduce average annual energy consumption per gross square foot of floor area by 45 in new buildings compared to FY75 as the base year. D Reduce dependence on critical fuels. The DOD goals to reduce dependence on critical fuels are 1 To obtain at least 10 of total Army installation energy from coal, coal gasification, solid waste, refuse derived fuel and biomass. 2 To equip all natural gas only heating units and plants over 5 MEGA BTU per hour output with the capability to use oil or other alternate fuels 1982 goal 3 To have on hand at the beginning of each heating season a 30-day fuel supply for all oil only, oil - natural gas, and coal heating units over 5 mega BTU per hour output based upon the coldest month recorded and in a mobilization condition.
