To ensure availability and reliability of energy for mission requirements, Defense Energy Program Policy Memorandum (DEPPM) 92-1 (.pdf, 286Kb) requires the preparation of energy security plans, which should be integrated into installation security plans. A Memorandum from HQ/IMCOM (.pdf, 76Kb) addressed the preparation of energy security plans by all active and reserve installations. A Memorandum from ACSIM (.pdf, 51Kb) provides the guidance on energy security plan content, including the requirements set forth in DEPPM 92-1.
Simply stated, an Army installation should have energy systems (supply, storage, generation, transmission, and distribution) and associated utility systems (water, wastewater, compressed air, communications, petroleum, natural gas, and electric) that are as secure, survivable, and sustainable as the particular installation missions requirements dictate. Installations will assess the impact on energy and utility systems of terrorism, disasters, catastrophic accidents, explosions, strikes, and similar events, and will identify energy and utility systems that have deficiencies which jeopardize their missions. Such security vulnerability assessments will enable the installation commander to prepare for these contingencies.

To ensure that the Army provides safe, secure, reliable, environmentally compliant and cost-effective energy and water services to Soldiers, families, civilians and contractors on Army installations, the They U.S. Army Energy Strategy for Installations (.pdf, 1.3Mb) (Strategy) and The U.S. Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations (.pdf, 6Mb) (Campaign Plan) will form the foundation for the future direction and resource requirements for effective energy and water management for the Army.
The Secretary of the Army and the Army Chief of Staff signed the Strategy on 8 July 2005. The Strategy sets forth the Army's energy goals for 25 years and the Campaign Plan defines the intermediate actions, approaches, initiatives, and funding over the 25 years to ensure the Army successfully achieves long-range energy and water management goals.
The Strategy sets the general direction for the Army in five major initiatives:
- Eliminate energy waste in existing facilities
Eliminate and reduce energy inefficiencies that waste natural and financial resources, and do so in a manner that does not adversely impact comfort and quality of the facilities in which Soldiers, families, civilians and contractors work and live.
- Increase energy efficiency in new construction and renovations
Increase the use of energy technologies that provide the greatest cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency and support environmental considerations.
- Reduce dependence on fossil fuels
Increase the use of clean, renewable energy to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and to optimize environmental benefits and sustainability.
- Conserve water resources
Reduce water use to conserve water resources for drinking and domestic purposes.
- Improve energy security
Provide for the security and reliability of energy and water systems in order to provide dependable utility services.
The Campaign Plan was implemented in late 2005 and used in the FY 2008-2013 POM development process. This version is the current update to support the FY 2010-2015 POM development. The Campaign Plan will be reviewed for updates every two calendar years during odd years.
- Provides the way ahead for developing initiatives, approaches and funding strategies to meet the Army energy and water goals.
- Identifies tools, technologies, policies, management and institutional requirements to achieve initiatives and approaches.
- Describes the desired "end state" for the goals and identifies the metrics of success.
- Provides a year-by-year resource requirement and investment plan that coordinates all Army energy/water users and policy components (e.g., security, privatization, procurement, technology, construction, and environment) into cohesive and measurable objectives designed to meet the initiatives. Budget requirements are not shown in the public version of the Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations.
To facilitate the development of the Campaign Plan, an Industry Stakeholders workshop was held on 12 July 2005 followed by a writing workshop 13-14 July 2005. The agenda from the Industry Stakeholders workshop (.pdf, 28Kb) is available for downloading and contains links to the industry presentations.
The participants in the writing workshop were drawn from current and former Army staff representing a broad cross section of experience, as well as researchers from the DOE national laboratories. At the writing workshop, Don Fournier, Senior Research Specialist, University of Illinois, gave a presentation and led a discussion on "Energy Trends and Implications" (.pdf, 972Kb) to help the writing team frame the current energy (and water) environment, and provide a background for the development of the Campaign Plan.
A summary discussion of the Campaign Plan was presented to interested parties during Energy 2005 on 17 August 2005. View the presentation (.pdf, 164Kb)

FEMP - Louis R. Harris, Jr. Award
The Louis R. Harris, Jr. Award recognizes individuals for excellence in improving energy efficiency through utility energy service contracting at Federal facilities. Award recipients exemplify Lou Harris' goals and vision for building a strong partnership between the Federal government and the utility industry. Lou managed FEMP's Utility Program for several years until his death on 29 March 1999. He envisioned utility partnerships as a means of getting energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable projects completed at Federal sites.
FEMP - Energy Saver Showcase Award
To promote wise energy and water use throughout the Federal government, agencies are showcasing cost-effective energy efficiency, water-conserving, and renewable energy technologies in their facilities.
Since 1995, FEMP has recognized many sites as Federal Energy Saver Showcases. A showcase plaque prominently displayed at each showcase site informs visitors that the government building they are entering uses energy and water, as well as taxpayer dollars, wisely.
2003 Army Winners
Three Army facilities received the award in 2003:
Coleman Barracks #27, Mannheim, Germany - This project capitalized on the need to repair a damaged roof by simultaneously installing photovoltaic panels and conducting roof repairs, thus saving manpower, money, and ultimately saving energy and reducing emissions.
Fort Carson Green Training Building, Fort Carson, Colorado - This 2,800-square-foot sustainable training facility incorporated natural day lighting and high-efficiency windows to reduce energy use for heating and cooling and a natural cooling cupola that eliminates the need for air conditioning. The building also utilized recycled content construction materials, an exterior PV security light and PV walkway lights, low-flow and metered faucets, and xeriscaping for a total estimated savings of 9,000 kWh per year. This building design will be used in future facilities.
Watervliet Arsenal, Buildings 19, 110, and 115, Watervliet Arsenal, New York - This project involved the implementation of an emerging technology, proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Ten PEM fuel cells have been installed at three separate sites within the arsenal. This cutting-edge technology is expected to save the site 37.5 MWh per year.
