Energy Action Month

 

Every October, we recognize Energy Action Month to highlight the critical role energy plays in Air Force operations, and to encourage smart energy use and management for our installations, ground vehicles, and aircraft.

This year, our new theme of "Energy Able – Mission Capable” will showcase how efficient energy use increases mission capability and readiness for our global mission. Whether we’re championing projects that optimize aviation fuel use, or encouraging Airmen to make smart energy decisions at individual installations, our goal is to foster a culture that prioritizes energy optimization and water management.

Air Force Energy Program

The Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment, and Energy's (SAF/IE) Energy Program is responsible for the strategic management and oversight of the Air Force’s energy efforts, partnerships, and program and policy development across the Air Force enterprise. The program supports the overall Air Force Energy Vision of Enhancing Mission Assurance through Energy Assurance, which reflects the Air Force’s emphasis on energy resilience.

The Energy Program is made up of three supporting subprogram areas:

 

Installation Energy
InstallEnergy
Office of Energy Assurance
OEAThumb
Operational Energy
OperationalEnergyThumb

 

The Air Force Energy Program’s work in improving resilience, optimizing demand, and assuring supply is vital since every mission, Airman, and military capability depends on energy.  A future in which the energy program accomplishes its goals to holistically optimize cost and provide resilient, cleaner sources of energy by balancing the objectives of its energy projects and placing an increased focus on meeting multiple objectives within single projects means:

 

  • Increased energy resiliency, reliability and readiness of the Air Force

  • A more agile Air Force to maximize each watt of energy or gallon of fuel

  • Recognized Air Force leadership in energy assurance

  • A cleaner, cost-competitive energy future for Air Force energy projects

Strategy

Air Force Energy Flight Plan 2017 - 2036The 2017-2036 Air Force Energy Flight Plan identifies a long-term vision for the Air Force to Enhance Mission Assurance through Energy Assurance. The plan codifies the importance of energy to the Air Force mission, and targets a holistic approach to energy projects providing resilient, cost-effective, cleaner energy solutions and improving combat capabilities .
