Installation Management Energy Portfolio

Energy Portfolio Front Cover

The Installation Management Energy Portfolio (.pdf) is a companion to the Army Energy Security Implementation Strategy (AESIS) and represents the vision of the entire Installation Management Community to achieve the objectives set for us by the Secretary of the Army to improve our Energy Security posture.

The Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations & Environment) and Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management signed the Energy Portfolio on 15 September 2010.

The Portfolio is an overview of the Army energy "toolbox" capabilities we will use to eliminate unnecessary consumption, increase efficiency, and expand use of renewable sources. These actions are essential if we are to break our dangerous dependence on foreign fossil fuel, address the deteriorating environment from greenhouse gas emissions, and posture our installations to sustain operations in spite of natural disasters or other grid interruptions. All commands are moving our energy program forward with innovative planning and effective application of resources by making energy a consideration in all of our actions. Within the Installation Management Command (IMCOM), for example, a new Installation Management Campaign Plan is being implemented with a specific Line of Effort focused on Energy. In addition, IMCOM has issued an Energy Operations Order (OPORD) that puts in motion a broad range of actions to move us forward using the capabilities in this Portfolio.

The Portfolio also highlights many projects recently completed or currently underway using both conventional and renewable energy sources to help meet our commitment to make the Army a leader in Energy solutions and achieve operational security through greater efficiency in our facilities and utility systems. It serves as a guide to help us answer three very important questions when assessing the progress of the energy program at each of our installations: 1) Are we doing the right things? 2) Are we doing things right? and 3) What are we missing?

This document is intended to be shared with Commanders at all levels; Defense Department and other government executives; our sister Services; our enterprise partners; federal, state and local agencies; contractors; and energy providers who work with us to deliver the programs and innovative solutions for the future Army by utilizing all the tools, technologies, and authorities available to us.
