Everyone in the Air Force, from Airmen to civilians to contractors, play a key role in achieving our energy goals by making energy a consideration in all that we do. Energy Action Month is a time to reflect on the crucial role energy plays for our Air Force and for each Airmen to learn more about what they can do to help the Air Force achieve an assured energy advantage in air, space, and cyberspace.

tabWhat's New in Air Force Energy 
October is Energy Action Month
"Energy enables every mission across our global Air Force as we try to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace. It powers our aircraft, it supports our installations, and no matter what your job is or where you are in the world, energy is enabling what Airmen are doing."
-- Hon. Michael Donley, Secretary of the Air Force

Federal Energy Management Program Award Winners

The Air Force won its most ever: eight of the 25 projects or programs selected as deserving of this year's coveted FEMP awards. In total, 10 government agencies won awards including the Navy with four and the Army with one.

The Air Force Civil Engineer Center received 29 nomination packages from across the Air Force and culled them down to 15, the maximum accepted by DOE.

"The Air Force is doing great things to save energy, water and money," said AFCEC Director Joe Sciabica. "Work by Airmen, civilians and contractors over the past two decades has created a cost avoidance of $626 million, money that can be better spent executing the Air Force mission."
