Abstract : In October of 1989, Benatec Associates was awarded an 'Energy Savings Opportunity Survey' at Fort Eustis, Virginia. Fort Eustis is located at the mid-point of the Virginia peninsula in southeast Virginia. Fort Eustis is bounded by the James River to the west and the Warwick River to the east. Fort Eustis experiences a relatively mild winter and a warm humid summer. The close proximity of the James River, York River, Chesapeake Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean tend to influence the local weather. The weather at Fort Eustis is quite mild due to the latitude and the proximity to large bodies of water. Fort Eustis, Virginia, is the home of the United States Army Transportation Center and School. Primary stationary training and housing is located on the northern one third of the post. Field training is performed on the southern end of Fort Eustis. Felker Army Airfield is located in the central portion of the post. Three fourths of the facilities studied were located in the northern portion of Fort Eustis. The remaining facilities evaluated in this report were located on Felker Army Airfield. In order to understand how an 'Energy Savings Opportunity Survey' works, a short discussion of the major tasks performed is required.
