  • 4. A SNAPSHOT: ENERGY PORTFOLIO Fort Bragg Energy Portfolio lays out our vision by answering the questions: • Where are we? (current status) • Where do we want to go? (vision) • How we will get there? (plan) • How much it will cost? (resource requirements)
  • 5. ENERGY PROGRAM GOALS & OBJECTIVESGoal: Transition to reliable and secure renewable energy while aggressively reducing overall demand. • Objective 1: Eliminate energy inefficiencies that waste natural and financial resources in existing facilities using FY2003 as a baseline (kwh/sqft). “How you use it” • Objective 2: Increase energy efficiency in renovation and new construction. “How you construct it” • Objective 3: Reduce dependency on fossil fuel and increase the use of clean renewable energy. “How we get it” • Objective 4: Improve surety and reliability of energy systems to provide dependable utility services. “How you protect it”

  • 8. RETROCOMMISSIONING (RCx) “30,000 mile tune up” - has to become a standard & recurring practice• Fort Bragg began retro-commissioning (RCx) in 2010• 300+ buildings currently undergoing RCx 25% Expected• Over 600 deficiencies were found during RCx annual energy savings for barracks and 65%• *Protects the Army’s significant construction investment for admin spaces 8

  • 11. ENERGY PROJECT FUNDINGESPC: Energy Savings Performance ContractingAgreement between a Federal facility and an energy services company (ESCO). TheESCO designs a project to increase energy efficiency and/or implement renewableenergy at a facility. The ESCO then purchases and installs the necessary equipment. TheESCO is responsible for maintaining the equipment, as well as measuring the energyconsumption and savings. In exchange, the Federal agency pays the company a share ofthe savings resulting from the energy efficiency improvements/renewable energygeneration. To implement this type of financing, guaranteed savings is required, alongwith measurement and verification reporting requirements. At end of contract term theagency retains 100% of the future energy savings. ESPC projects require federalownership of the project.
  • 12. ENERGY PROJECT FUNDINGUESC: Utility Energy Savings ContractingSimilar to ESPC agreements, but involve the utility serving the Federal facility instead ofa private energy services company. In a UESC, a utility company agrees to provideFederal agencies with services or products (or both) that are designed to make Federalfacilities more energy efficient or utilize more renewable energy. Federal agencies mayuse appropriated funds in addition to securing third party project financing through theutility when implementing UESCs. The utility is repaid over the contract term from thecost savings generated by the energy efficiency and/or renewable energy measures.During the contract period, the facility pays a lower utility bill, as well as a payment tothe utility for the UESC project. The total of these two payments should be less than orequal to an average amount of utility bills before the UESC.
  • 13. ENERGY PROJECT FUNDINGECIP: Energy Conservation Investment ProgramSubset of the Defense Agencies Military Construction (MILCON) program specificallydesignated for projects that save energy or reduce DoD energy costs. It includesconstruction of new, high-efficiency energy systems, the improvement andmodernization of existing systems, and new renewable energy projects. ECIP wascreated in 1976 as an energy conservation funding mechanism. ECIP investment awardsare made based upon savings to investment ratio and simple payback criteria. ECIPfunding is limited, and is awarded on a competitive basis within the Army - only themost economically feasible projects are funded. Like UESC, it requires federalownership.
  • 14. ENERGY PROJECT FUNDINGQUTM: Utilities ModernizationThe Utilities Modernization Program (UMP) focuses on those utility systems that areeither exempt from privatization or pending exemption from privatization.Modernization, as part of the Department of Defense Recapitalization program, isdefined as alteration of facilities to implement new or higher standards, toaccommodate new functions, to increase the efficiencies of components or the overallsystem and to replace building components that are at or beyond their service life.Modernization may be required due to a new mission or a change of capacityrequirements at a particular location. Modernization may be accomplished through:incremental upgrades or replacements of a facility over the facility service life; fullmodernization or refurbishment of a facility at the end of its service life; orreplacement of a facility at the end of its service life.
