Army Energy Strategy for Installations

Monday December 4, 2006

What is it? The Army Energy Strategy for Installations was approved by the Secretary of the Army and Army Chief of Staff on July 8, 2005 as the long-range vision for the Army's Energy Program for Installations. This Strategy establishes the framework for how the Army will meet the challenges posed by rising energy prices, potential energy shortages, aging infrastructure and a changing global environment while achieving the Army's mission and objectives. It is founded on five initiatives:

- Eliminate energy waste in existing facilities,
- Increase energy efficiency in renovation and new construction,
- Reduce dependency on fossil fuels;
- Conserve water resources,
- Improve energy security

The Strategy sets broad goals for the Army to manage energy and water resources through 2030.

What has the Army done? The Army Energy Strategy for Installations was developed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for the Army for Installations and Environment in coordination with the Army Staff offices, major Army commands and subordinate commands. In order to implement the Strategy in an orderly progression of policies, programs and projects, the Army has developed the Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations. The Campaign Plan provides the way ahead for leveraging resources to meet Army energy and water management goals and achieve the energy conservation mandates established in the new Energy Policy Act of 2005 that was signed by the President in August 2005. The Campaign Plan identifies detailed plans, metrics, milestones and lead agents for executing the Strategy. The Strategy and Campaign Plan are located at the "Campaign Plan" tab on the Army Energy Program web site at http://army-energy.hqda.pentagon.mil/

What efforts does the Army plan to continue in the future? The Army will measure progress toward achieving the goals of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the initiatives in the strategy by the metrics defined in the Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations.
