The Department of the Air Force Office of Energy Assurance (OEA) was established in February 2016 by the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of Staff to serve as the aggregator for installation energy and water resilience initiatives. Led by energy, policy, engineering and acquisition experts, OEA conducts holistic, data-driven analyses that identify opportunities for energy and water infrastructure improvements to meet mission requirements and provide actionable solutions.
OEA serves as the integrator of energy and water resilience efforts by ensuring projects align with installation needs and with the three goals of the Department of the Air Force (DAF) Installation Energy Strategic Plan — identify enabling system vulnerabilities, improve resilience planning, and ensure resilience results. As such, OEA connects DAF enterprise and installation stakeholders with energy and water resilience partners, emerging technologies, and industry best practices.
OEA is committed to the DAF vision of “Mission Assurance through Energy Assurance” and advocates for that vision through the identification and development of energy and water resilience solutions. Visit Work with OEA for more information on partnership and engagement opportunities.
Assure Air Force mission readiness through identification and development of impactful energy resilience solutions.
To secure Air Force warfighter superiority with the world’s most resilient infrastructure.
