Abstract : An Energy Savings Opportunity Survey (ESOS) has been completed for the U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground facility located at Dugway, Utah. This work, conducted as part of the Energy Engineering Analysis Program (EEAP), included: a review of previous studies; an evaluation of selected projects and energy conservation opportunities (ECOs); a site survey of 53 selected buildings to identify additional ECOs; analysis of the energy and cost savings and ECOs project costs; and preparation of project documentation for funding and implementation. Over 150 different energy conservation opportunities (ECOs), shown on pages 2 through 5, were identified during this ESOS. Economic analysis indicates that only 106 of these ECOs had a savings to investment (SIR) ratio greater than one. The estimated savings from the 106 ECOs was nearly 45,000 MBTU or 15 percent of the FY84-85 overall energy (MBTU) usage. Cost savings for the 106 ECOs are estimated to approach $271,000 or 9 percent of the same period. Most all of the ECOs identified save fuel oil rather than electricity. Total savings from the fuel oil ECOs exceed $260,000 or over 19 percent of the FY84-85 fuel oil usage. Seven projects were selected by Dugway Proving Ground for funding and implementation. These projects, outlined on pages 6 - 7 with supporting data starting on page 8, are estimated to save 44,000 MBTUs and over $267,900 annually. The estimated cost for design and construction of these projects is approximately $1,197,000.
