Army's Energy Strategy and Campaign Plan

This document and background are provided for historical information. The Army's Energy Strategy and Campaign Plan were replaced by the Army Energy Security Implementation Strategy (AESIS).

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 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 set the Army's energy goals and the Campaign Plan for intermediate actions, approaches, initiatives, and funding.

The Strategy sets the general direction for the Army in five major initiatives:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Conserve water resources
    Reduce water use to conserve water resources for drinking and domestic purposes.
  5. 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.
