Energy Action Month

October marks our observance of 2018's Energy Action Month. The goals of Energy Action Month are to highlight the importance of energy and water for the Air Force and to encourage smart energy and water use and management for our installations, ground vehicles, and aircraft.

The Air Force’s Energy Action Month theme “Protect the Power” serves as a call to action for members of our Air Force community to practice energy efficient habits in their daily lives, and to champion smart energy policies and procedures. 

To support Energy Action Month 2018, the Air Force has developed the following materials for energy managers, public affairs officers, and other interested parties. We encourage you to download and distribute these materials to educate Airmen about the important role energy and water play in every aspect of the Air Force mission, and the role each person plays as a steward of our resources. Whether you implement aviation fuel efficiency projects or take action at individual installations, every effort taken by our dedicated Air Force community contributes to protecting our energy and water resources and helps us to increase Air Force combat capability.
