Current Inititiaves

Air Force energy and water projects are transforming the ways in which the Air Force uses energy and water at installations. To ensure a reliable, ready and resilient supply continues, the Air Force Installation Energy Program is integrating energy and water considerations across the enterprise by focusing on the following initiatives:
Energy-As-A-Service
To ensure that United States Air Force Airmen have the power when, and where they need it, the Air Force, through the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Environment, Safety and Infrastructure (SAF/IEE), is leading the development of an Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) business model that can support Air Force installations in meeting their energy needs. Through the model, the Air Force envisions realigning energy procurement and management functions through one contract to cost-effectively and comprehensively deliver reliable, resilient and efficient energy at an installation. The EaaS provider would be solely responsible for operation of and investment in the electric utility system, including any onsite generation; the procurement of electricity supplies; and the implementation of in-building energy efficiency and end-use consumption. The ultimate goal of the EaaS model is to work with industry providers to buy the mission capability, not just the energy commodity.
 

 EaaS utilizes one industry partner to manage, operate and invest in the energy portfolio at an installation.

Installation Energy Plans
With the increased prevalence of large-scale natural disasters and the recognized threat of physical and cyber-attacks on our utilities, coordinating installation planning for energy and water resilience has never been more important. To address these threats, the Air Force is developing IEPs to employ strategies to improve installation energy and water resilience. By planning for the future, the Air Force is better equipped to identify and execute energy and water projects to achieve mission assurance

Mission Thread Analysis
Recognizing energy is required for all Air Force operations and the increasing potential for prolonged power disruptions, the Air Force must better prioritize actions and drive targeted investments in energy and other enabling systems. The MTA approach provides a top-down strategic look at impacts from these disruptions, both internally across the Air Force enterprise and externally with other governmental agencies and industry partners.

Water Resources Management
From training to operations and facilities, water is a critical input to accomplish Air Force missions. As part of the Installation Energy portfolio, the water resources management program is shifting from managing water primarily based on conservation targets and quality monitoring toward a risk-based approach that more directly supports mission assurance. This will provide insights into vulnerabilities and potential impacts to mission at installations and enterprise wide, empowering decision makers to invest in resilience and manage water more effectively.
