The Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Environment, Safety and Infrastructure's (SAF/IEE) Installation Energy Program is committed to improving Air Force resiliency, optimizing demand and assuring supply. 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.
By looking across the Air Force enterprise for opportunities to be cost-effective and provide resilient, clean sources of energy, the Air Force will be able to balance the objectives of its energy projects and place an increased focus on meeting multiple objectives within single projects.
