Operational Energy Ashore
Our installations play a critical role in enhancing readiness, generating the force structure necessary for mission success, and enabling combat operations.
The Navy's shore energy approach as three pillars:
- Energy Efficiency: Decreases energy consumption by incorporating efficiency standards into existing systems
- Culture and Behavior: Changes our energy culture by linking energy consumption to behavior through awareness and accountability at the individual, command and functional levels
- Renewable Energy and Sustainability: Pursuing renewable and alternative energy technology allows us to invest when and where it is viable, allows us to partner and develop needed technologies with other government organizations or industries, and allows us to lead the development of mission-critical technology
Together, these focus areas will increase our nation's energy security, as well as, enable the Navy to comply with federal mandates and organizational goals.
