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 installation should be aware that savings figures presented in this summary can only be realized after all projects have been implemented. Black & Veatch has developed projects that would meet the 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; (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) Savings utilizing central energy monitoring and control systems (EMCS); (5) Use of solid waste as an alternate energy source, and (6) Analysis of Total Energy/Selective Energy (TE/SE) systems. Tables 1 and 2 present information pertaining to the physical descriptions and energy consumption of 51 typical buildings used to verify historical energy consumption in the development of the basewide energy use model.
