Welcome to the Air Force Office of Energy Assurance

OEA Logo Welcome to the U.S. Air Force Office of Energy Assurance (OEA). The office was established in February 2016 by the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of Staff to serve as the single point of entry for all strategic energy and resiliency initiatives. OEA serves as the facilitator and integrator of energy assurance efforts and acts as "resilience advocates" by ensuring projects align with installation needs and with the three strategic goals of the Air Force Energy Flight Plan - improve resiliency, optimize demand, and assure supply. As such, OEA partners with defense and federal agencies, industry and communities to develop innovative, technology-neutral solutions that defend against cyber, natural and physical challenges. 

As the Air Force Energy Storefront, OEA works to balance the objectives of an installation’s energy initiatives while optimizing cost and providing resilient energy solutions in support of the Air Force mission. 

OEA operates as the Air Force Energy Storefront by:

  • Serving as the single point of entry for all installation energy requirements. 
  • Acting as the facilitator and integrator to maximize assurance and track execution with appropriate Air Force organizations.
  • Integrating energy assurance into the Air Force installation energy project portfolio by leveraging public, private and community partnerships.

OEA’s holistic strategy for energy management helps shape installation resilience across the country, and in turn, enhance the Air Force mission.

Visit Work with OEA for more information on partnership and engagement opportunities.
