Abstract : Included in this summary are the results of the first five increments of the Basewide Energy Systems Plan for Fort Rucker, Alabama. This plan includes analyses and recommendations of energy conservation projects for the reduction of the installation's present energy consumption. The savings figures presented in this summary can only be realized after all projects have been implemented. Black & Veatch has developed projects that would meet funding requirements for the energy conservation program. Furthermore, the recommended projects provide partial compliance with the energy conservation requirement for the installation as outlined in the Army Facilities Energy Plan. This summary presents data on the following: (1) Existing energy consumption and the basewide energy use model, (2) Source energy reductions due to energy conservation techniques for buildings and their systems, (3) Application of solar energy to reduce fossil fuel consumption, (4) Use of solid waste as an alternate energy source, (5) Savings utilizing central energy monitoring and control systems (EMCS).
