Abstract : This is a summary of the results of the Basewide Energy Systems Plan for Fort Knox, Kentucky. This plan includes analyses and recommendations of energy conservation projects for 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. 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) Energy use model, (2) Existing energy consumption, (3) Source energy reductions due to energy conservation techniques for buildings and their systems, (4) Application of solar energy to reduce fossil fuel consumption, (5) Savings utilizing central energy monitoring and control systems (EMCS), (6) Use of solid waste as an alternate energy source, (7) Analysis of Total Energy/Selective Energy (TE/SE) systems.
