Abstract : Fort Myer is a permanent United States Army installation located in Arlington County, Virginia, on a site backing Arlington National Cemetery and overlooking the Potomac River and Washington, D.C. The installation consists of offices, family housing, Army Band facilities, supporting facilities, and barracks buildings including those known as the 'Old Guard Barracks' which house soldiers that provide services at Arlington National Cemetery. 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, Building 447, 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 twenty-two buildings on the base.
