Abstract : Systems Corp surveyed and completed water and energy analyses for 650 representative buildings at Fort Knox, categorized as unaccompanied personnel housing, community facilities, administrative facilities, maintenance facilities, training facilities, family housing, post laundry, hospital, heating plants, cooling towers, water treatment plants and water distribution systems. The water and energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) are evaluated. Cost estimates were prepared using MeansData for Windows Spreadsheets, Version 2.0a. Life cycle cost analyses were performed using the Life Cycle Cost in Design (LCCID) computer program. Project descriptions and DD1391 forms were prepared for four Energy Conservation Investment program (ECIP) projects. The total of the four projects that were developed represent $893K in annual savings and a total discounted savings of $13.4M in the twenty year life of the projects. The simple paybacks average 5.6 years and the savings to investment (SIR) for the four ECIP projects average 2.8. In addition, three Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) projects were developed. FEMP Project 1 is the replacement of all of the steam traps in the post laundry with a payback of 0.5 years and an SIR of 40. FEMP Project 2 is heating distribution system manhole repairs with a 3.4 year payback and an SIR of 5.5. FEMP Project 3 is the installation of wells to provide irrigation water for Lindsey and Anderson Greens with a 5.1 year payback and an SIR of 2.9.
