SecDef Underscores Commitment to Increase Energy Security
By U.S. ArmyOctober 28, 2016
PENTAGON - Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter underscores the Department of Defense's commitment to increasing energy security for the Warfighter.
The October 13, 2016 memorandum announces Energy Action Month and highlights how Energy Security underwrites the Services' unique ability to train, rapidly deploy, employ, and sustain military forces around the globe.
Ensuring the Department's forces have the energy they require is a fundamental enabler of national security, said Secretary Carter.
Secretary Carter highlights progress to date, including almost doubling the use of renewable energy since 2012 at military fixed installations, and becoming more efficient to both enhance resilience and to reduce operating costs.
Even with this progress, Secretary Carter emphasizes the need to build on the Department's record of accomplishment, and for each of us to continue to take an active role.
