Fort Stewart integrated resource assessment. Volume 3: Resource assessment
The U.S. Army Ferces Command (FORSCOM) has tasked the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) I Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), supported by the Pacific Northwest Laboratory, (a)to identify, evaluate, and assist in acquiring all cost-effective energy projects at Fort Stewart. This is part of a model program that PNL is designing to suppo_ energy-use decisions in the federal sector. This reportprovides the results of the fossil fi:_eland electric energy resource opportunity (ERO) assessments
... rformed by PNL at the FORSCOM Fort Stewart facility located approximately 25 miles southwest of Savannah, Georgia. It is a companion report to Volume 1, Executive Summary, and Volume 2, Baseline Detail. The results of the analyses of EROs are presented in 11 common energy end-use categories (e.g., boilers and furnaces, service hot water, and building lighting). A narrative description of each ERO is provided, along with a table detailing information on the installed cost, energy and dollar savings; impacts on operations and maintenance (O&M); and, when applicable, a discussion of energy supply and demand, energy security, and environmental issues. A description of the evaluation methodologies and technical and cost assumptions is also provided for each ERO. Summary tables present the cost-effectiveness of energy end-use equipment before and after the implementation of each ERO. The tables also present the results of the life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis indicating the net present value (NPV) and savings to investment ratio (SIR) of each ERO. (a) Pacific Northwest Laboratory is operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by Battelle Memorial Institute under Contract DE-AC06-76RLO 1830. 111 The cost-effective ERO results have been aggregated by ERO category. Hot water EROs represent the greatest efficiency resource, accounting for 25.5%of the total energy savings. Lighting and heating also represent significant savings; each are approximately 20% of the total 245,244 MBtu savings available.
