Engage with the Air Force Installation Energy

Working with the Air Force

The Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment, and Energy's (SAF/IE) Energy Program is committed to developing and deploying policies and guidance to ensure the Air Force has the energy required to meet its missions. In the area of technology, the office provides expertise and coordinates efforts led by the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) and other offices.

SAF/IE Energy Program Areas
Installation Energy
SAF/IE's Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Environment, Safety and Infrastructure (SAF/IEE) is responsible for all matters pertaining to the Air Force's energy used to power all facilities located on an 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 Office of Energy Assurance
As the Air Force Energy Storefront, the Office of Energy Assurance (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.

Operational Energy
SAF/IE's Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Operational Energy (SAF/IEN) is responsible for providing policy, governance, and oversight of Operational Energy (OE) integration into plans, programs, acquisitions, and budgets to support and enhance the Air Force mission. SAF/IEN enhances the Air Force's combat capability through OE advocacy influencing Policies, Processes, People and Platforms.

For information on how to engage with other areas of the Air Force, below is a list of the other offices we work with.

Air Mobility Command Fuel Efficiency Office
The Air Mobility Command (AMC) Fuel Efficiency Office (FEO) recommends and develops the tools, processes, aircraft modifications, metrics and organizational interfaces that enable AMC to achieve and maintain ability on par with industry's best practices. The goal of the AMC FEO is to analyze, propose, lead implementation and continue improvement activities associated with aviation fuel conservation and operational efficiency improvements while maximizing cross command operational effectiveness. 

Air Force Civil Engineer Center
The Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC), headquartered at Joint Base San Antonio - Lackland, is the civil engineer field operating agency responsible for facility investment planning, design and construction, operations support, real property management, readiness, energy support, environmental compliance and restoration, and audit assertions, acquisition and program management. This agency focuses on technologies that are proven and ready for field testing and actively engages with vendors during Industry Days to encourage facilities innovation.

Air Force Petroleum Office
The Air Force Petroleum Office (AFPET) provides the warfighter and space launch activities technical support (analytical, scientific and engineering) and specialized capabilities in petroleum, propellants, cryogenics, chemical and gases for all aerospace vehicles, systems and equipment. AFPET is the service control point for all Defense Logistics Agency fuel-related support issues.

Vehicle and Equipment Management Support Office (VEMSO)
The Air Force Vehicle and Equipment Management Office manages the global fleet system. It is an innovative program designed to promote testing and acquisition of commercially available equipment (e.g., shop tools/products and equipment) in support of logistic readiness and civil engineering missions.

#FridayInnovation: Our Operational Energy team is focused on how the United States Air Force can reduce fuel burn by decreasing aircraft weight. For example, the more fuel an aircraft carries, the more fuel it burns - so we are working with the Major Commands to optimize fuel loads and increase efficiency. Learn more: https://go.usa.gov/xUaXt
