This Final Report details Energy Conservation Opportunities ECOs for the Laundry and Boiler Plant at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The ECOs noted in the table on the next page were evaluated for individual energy savings and are recommended for implementation. The energy savings and implementation costs for each measure are summarized on the following page in order of decreasing savings-to-investment SIR ratio. ECIP life cycle cost analyses were performed on all ECOs as a preliminary step, though all of the measures will fall into other funding categories. Because of the high internal heat gain produced in the Laundry, coupled with the fact that the laundry is not air conditioned, building envelope measures do not produce any energy savings. The most viable ECOs are related to the Boiler Plant Boiler Replacement, recovering energy wasted in the wash water Rinse Water Reuse or utilizing Low Temperature Wash Water, and Changing the Hours of Laundry Operation. Additional operation and maintenance items are listed that can be addressed by the Directorate of Engineering and Housing DEH or the Laundry contractor, Integrity Management International, Inc., to generate quick energy savings. There are also several items included that will not produce energy savings but will improve the comfort level of the Laundry. These items should be given consideration as a method of improving productivity andor employee morale. All ECOs evaluated by the project team are described in detail with engineering calculations for each following in Appendix 2.
- Non-electrical Energy Conversion
- Logistics, Military Facilities and Supplies
- Economics and Cost Analysis
