Abstract:

Energy Optimization Assessment was conducted at several Army installations in Germany 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 installations to better meet the energy reduction requirements mandated by Executive Order 13123 and Energy Policy Act EPAct 2005. Previous studies were conducted at Fort Stewart GA Fort Bliss TX West Point Military Academy, NY U.S. Army Garrison USAG Vicenza, Italy and several sites in Germany. Results of those studies are documented separately. The study was conducted by the Energy Team, composed of the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL researchers and their subject matter experts. 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 87 different energy conservation measures ECMs that would reduce annual electrical use by up to 9.3 million kWh and thermal energy use by 27,545 MMBtuyr.
