The Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Environment, Safety, and Infrastructure's (SAF/IEE) Installation Energy Program is committed to ensuring mission critical infrastructure assets receive the necessary secure, reliable power when and where they need it. The Program provides effective and efficient energy and water management policy and program oversight by developing and deploying policies and guidance to ensure the Air Force has energy secure power projection platforms in which to meet its missions.
Installation energy accounts for nearly 20% of the total Air Force energy consumption and includes the energy used to power all facilities located Air Force installation or enduring location, as well as fuel for the non-tactical fleet vehicles used at those locations and the energy consumed in manufacturing, maintenance, and other processes.
The Air Force looks first-and-foremost at energy projects designed to improve mission resilience, while recognizing cost-effectiveness and cleaner energy as valuable subcomponents.
