Abstract : Fort Myer is a permanent United States Army installation located in Arlington County, Virginia. The installation consists of offices, family housing, Army Band facilities, supporting facilities, and barracks. This report consists of the Summer Steam Shut Down Study of an Energy Savings Opportunity Survey (ESOS) at Fort Myer. The purpose of this study is to improve energy efficiency at Fort Myer by analyzing the effects and benefits of closing the central steam producing boiler facility during the non-heating months from mid-May to mid-October. Currently, the central steam plant operates through this period to provide steam for domestic hot water, steam driven laundry presses, air conditioning system reheat, food preparation and dishwashing demands of 22 buildings on the base.
