Abstract : Systems Corp surveyed and completed energy analyses for 72 representative buildings at Fort Knox, categorized as gymnasium, print shop, maintenance, and warehouse facilities. The energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) evaluated were infrared heat and window/wall insulation. Cost estimates were prepared using MeansData for Windows Spreadsheets, Version 2.0a. Life cycle cost analyses were performed using the Life Cycle Cost in Design (LCCID) computer program. Project descriptions and DD 1391 forms were prepared for two Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) projects. The total of the two projects that were developed represent $538K in annual savings and a total discounted savings of $ 10.1M in the twenty year life of the projects. The simple paybacks average 6.3 years and the savings to investment (SIR) for the two ECIP projects is 2.75. In addition, five FEMP projects were developed for projects totaling less than $1,000,000 investment costs. FEMP projects one through four are infra-red heat averaging a payback of 6.1 years and an SIR of 2.8. The fifth FEMP project is window insulation for two buildings. This project is for $17,600 of investment with a 4.74 year payback and an SIR of 4.42.
