tabEnergy Action Month 

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.

The Biggest Reducer
Team Schriever begins Energy Action Month

9/30/2014 - SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- October is the official Energy Action Month for the Air Force. To help celebrate the energy month this year, Team Schriever is kicking off its "Biggest Energy Reducer Competition."

Energy Action Month is a campaign that is designed to focus attention on energy and water savings activities. This year's theme is "I am Air Force Energy."

The competition pits all facilities on base to compete against each other to determine which building will generate the biggest energy reduction.

ENERGY: Clearly a mission-essential resource

10/1/2014 - PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla.  -- As you are probably aware, October is "Energy Awareness Month," and a time for us to foot-stomp how vital energy is to our national security and to our environmental well-being, now and in the years to come.

This year's theme, "I am Air Force Energy," places all Airmen squarely at the center of the annual campaign. 

The Air Force Civil Engineering Center (AFCEC) explains that this year's goal is "to inspire the total force to be more efficient so they can give the Air Force an assured energy advantage in air, space, and cyberspace."

Academy hits conservation target

9/26/2014 - U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- In light of October being Energy Action Month, developed by the Department of Energy, Academy mission elements gathered Sept. 23 to discuss energy and utility savings for the year and analyze new efforts here to reduce costs and save energy.

From August 2013 - August 2014 the Academy reduced its electrical use by 3.3 million kilowatt hours and reduced its water use by 18 million gallons.

It's that time of year again: Energy Month events planned to help boost awareness, cut costs

9/26/2014 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- For some, October means post-season baseball, college football or raking leaves.

But for Team Robins, it also happens to be an opportune time to learn more about resource conservation as Energy Action Month kicks off here and around the Air Force.

With this year's theme, "I Am Air Force Energy," the 78th Civil Engineer Group Energy Management Office looks for October's campaign to promote awareness of the little things everyone can do on a daily basis.

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."
