Abstract : The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of energy being used, the cost of this energy, and to recommend projects that will reduce energy consumption for Buildings 101, 104, 107, 114, 116, 118, 119, 120, 122, 125 and 138, located in the Forest Glen Complex, which is part of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). Executive Order No. 12003, 20 July 1977, established energy conservation goals for existing Federal facilities requiring a reduction of 20% in the average energy use in FY 85 from the average annual energy requirements in FY 75. The Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) is a Military Construction funded program for retrofitting existing DOD facilities to make them more energy efficient and thus providing substantial savings in utility costs. Each project is assessed in terms of source energy saved, the value of the energy and the capital and operating costs of the changes. The ECIP guidance provides two criteria for evaluating energy saving opportunities. These are an energy/cost ratio (E/C) and a benefit/cost ratio (B/C). For FY 84 the E/C ratio must be 13 or more with a B/C greater than one. Beginning with FY 85, ECIP projects will be prioritized on the basis of the greatest life cycle payback as determined by the savings to investment ratio (SIR). Overall projects and discrete portions of projects must be life cycle cost effective (SIR equal to or greater than 1). All energy savings projected in FY 85 shall be based on full occupancy of the buildings in the study.
