Abstract : This analysis is undertaken to assist the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant (INAAP) in meeting the goals established in the Army Facilities Energy Plan to reduce energy consumption by 25 percent by 1985. Projects selected for implementation as a result of this analysis will enable INAAP to achieve the 1985 goal. Source energy consumed in l975 was 508,000 MBTU's. This was reduced by INAAP to 346,000 in 1980 for a 42 percent savings. By combining INAAP's conservation effort with the projects described in this report, FY 1985 source energy consumption will be 210,000 MBTU's or a 46 percent reduction. Projects are divided into Standby and Mobilization Status. Standby status projects will save approximately 58,000 MBTU's. Total energy reduction from FY 80 to the end of FY 85 will be approximately 136,000 MBTU's including 78,000 MBTh's from INAAP's energy conservation effort. The total installed cost of the Standby projects is estimated at approximately $3 million. If Mobilization status projects are implemented source energy consumption can be reduced by an additional 3,365,000 MBTU's. The mobilization project savings are based on full mobilization with no change in the present process. The cost of implementing the Mobilization projects is approximately $20 million.
