Abstract : This Energy Savings Opportunity Survey (ESOS) at Ft. Bliss Texas was prepared by Engineering Design & Management, Inc., St. Louis, MO., under contract with the Department of the Army, Fort Worth District, Corps of Engineers. In summary, the ESOS can be divided into six essentially separate studies. These are: (1) Re-evaluate previous ECIP on family housing ceiling insulation. (2) Examine 60 to 400 Hz converters for opportunities to reduce utility costs. Review will include examination of alternative technologies, as well as optional utilization of existing stock. (3) Examine the possibility of adding additional storage to potable water system to allow pumping during 'off peak' hours as defined by local utility. Savings will occur as demand savings. (4) Study three 'typical' buildings on base for savings due to fenestration improvements. These improvements would include exterior shading, double pane glazing, reflective films, and window area reduction. (5) Evaluate the feasibility of down-sizing existing transformers and/or connecting additional load to improve transformer utilization and reduce transformer core energy losses. (6) Evaluate the feasibility of implementing several common ECOs at the base. These ECOs would include wall and roof insulation, timeclocks, etc.
