Abstract : The purpose of this volume is to present a summary of the results of the Basewide Energy Conservation Study and System Plan for Fort Hood, Texas. The overall objective of this study is to develop a systematic approach to facilitate the reduction of energy consumption at Fort Hood by approximately 20 percent per square foot. However, such a study would be incomplete if the goals established by the Major Army Command (MACOM) and assigned by Presidential Executive Order 12003 and the Department of Defense were not considered. In addition, the Department of the Army has established a goal for reduction of total facility energy consumption by at least 25 percent by FY 85 and a reduction of 50 percent by FY 2000 using FY 75 as the base year. Other pertinent goals include reducing facility use of petroleum fuels by 75 percent and eliminating use of natural gas by FY 2000. This summary presents data from the study on the following: Existing energy consumption; Source energy reductions due to energy conservative techniques; Savings utilizing central energy monitoring and control systems; Use of alternate energy sources; Total Energy and Selective Energy Systems; Operational and planning recommendations.
