Energy Action Month

Energy Action Month

Every October, the Department of the Air Force recognizes Energy Action Month to highlight energy's critical role in operations and mission continuity and to encourage smart energy use and management for our installations, ground vehicles, and aircraft. 

This year, the DAF is embracing a new three-year theme, “Powering Possibility,” which reflects the Department’s forward-looking approach to energy innovation and powering the future force. Under this theme, the DAF will showcase energy’s essential role in assuring combat capability and readiness, underscore the importance of developing high return-on-investment energy solutions that bolster resilience in the face of climate change, and encourage Airmen and Guardians to prioritize efficient energy and water management.

To support Energy Action Month 2022, we've developed the following materials for energy managers, public affairs officers, and other interested parties. We encourage you to download and distribute these materials to raise awareness about the important role energy and water play in every aspect of the mission. Whether you implement aviation fuel efficiency projects or take action at individual installations, every effort taken by our community helps us to improve our capability and resilience.
