  • Here are a couple take-aways on operational energy, which CPT Jeff Swinford will soon bring to life for you. Again, you see the 70% and 18% statistics for weight and casualties… the point being that whatever we can do to reducefuel and water demand will reduce the number of convoys, casualties, and Soldiers required to protect them. You will learn more about the advantages and the efficiencies gained in networking our latest models of generators.The last thought I leave you with is the last bullet on this slide… that our success will ultimately depend on our ability to change behavior, and cause our Soldiers to model the behaviors, we desire for our Army.Now (time permitting) I’m going to show you a short 5 minute video, and Jeff will pick things up from there.

    2. 2. Army Energy in Perspective• The Army manages both Installation & Operational Energy requirements• The Army is largest facility energy consumer in the Federal Government – $1.3B (FY11)• The Army spent $3.7B on liquid fuel purchases in FY11, a more than $1B increase over FY10, in part due to an increase in the cost to deliver liquid fuel in Afghanistan Fort Carson Photovoltaic ArrayEXTERNAL VIEW: “Pay attention: When the U.S. Army desegregated, the country reallydesegregated; when the Army goes green, the country could really go green.” – Thomas Friedman,2009WHITE HOUSE VIEW: “Now, there are costs associated with this transition. And there are some whobelieve that we can’t afford to pay those costs right now. I say we can’t afford not to change how weproduce and use energy – because in the long-term costs to our economy, our national security andour environment are far greater. “ – President Obama, June 2010“Operational Energy equates exactly to operational capability” - General John Allen, CommanderUnited States Forces – Afghanistan, December 2011“Improving our energy security directly translates to improving our national security.” - GeneralMartin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, October 2011 Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations, Energy, & Environment) 2
    3. 3. Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Energy and SustainabilityEnergy and Sustainability Mission: Provide Strategic Leadership, Policy Guidance, Program Oversight and Outreach for Energy and Sustainability throughout the Army Enterprise to Enhance Current Installation and Operational Capabilities, Safeguard Resources and Preserve Future OptionsOffice Structure The Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Energy and Sustainability is broken down into four categories • Operational Energy • Installation Energy • Sustainability • Energy Initiatives Task Force Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations, Energy, & Environment) 3

    5. 5. Army Energy Program● Change the Culture: Every Soldier a Power Manager– Senior Energy and Sustainability Council (SESC)/Senior Energy Executive (SEE)– Energy and Sustainability must be a consideration in all Army activities– System wide approach for designing base camps to capture efficiencies● Drive Efficiency Across the Enterprise– Leverage public private financing to accelerate efficiency projects– Implement technologies to significantly reduce energy footprint in the field and on installations● Build Resilience through Renewable/Alternative Energy– Diversify sources of energy to allow for continued operations during energy disruptions– Attract private investment to develop large scale renewable energy projects– Provide flexibility and resiliency by developing alternatives and adaptable capabilities● Science and Technology– Army’s future efforts depend on Science and Technology investments Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations, Energy, & Environment) 5
    6. 6. Enhancing Mission Effectiveness Installation Energy • Since FY03 the Army has reduced its energy consumption by 13.1% while total population on its installations has increased 20%. • Established Net Zero Initiative to demonstrate integrated design principals that will ensure the Army of tomorrow has the same access to energy, water, land and natural resources as the Army of today. • Army has most robust ESPC program in entire Federal government. • Secured more than $1.5B in ESPC and UESC investment at more than 72 installations. • Cost avoidance of $148 million. • Energy savings of more 7.986 trillion British Thermal Units (BTU). • Army efforts over the past year have reduced process times on these contracts to less than 14 months.Through technology and policies • Formed the Energy Initiatives Task Force to develop large scale we are reducing our energy renewable energy projects that will help strengthen energy footprint. We will provide security while supporting the Army’s energy goals. flexibility and resiliency by • The Army is actively managing its non-tactical vehicle fleet to developing alternatives and reduce size and improve efficiency, resulted in a 8% fuel use reduction in FY11. adaptable capabilities 6
    7. 7. Net Zero Hierarchy  A Net Zero ENERGY Installation is an installation that produces as much energy on site as it uses, over the course of a year.  A Net Zero WATER Installation limits the consumption of freshwater resources and returns water back to the same watershed so not to deplete the groundwater and surface water resources of that region in quantity or quality.  A Net Zero WASTE Installation is an installation that reduces, reuses, and recovers waste streams, converting them to resource values with zero solid waste to landfill.  A Net ZERO INSTALLATION applies an integrated approach to management of energy, water, and waste to capture and commercialize the resource value and/or enhance the ecological productivity of land, water, and air.

    11. 11. Enhancing Mission Effectiveness Operational Energy • The Army spent approximately $3.7 Billion on fuel in FY11, more than a $1 billion increase over FY10. This does not include the cost to deliver and protect the delivery of fuel. • 70-80% of resupply weight in theater consists of fuel and water. • 18% of US casualties in OIF and OEF are related to ground resupply. • Reducing fuel and water demand will reduce the number of convoys, casualties, and Soldiers required to protect them. • In late 2011, the Army funded 36 mini-grids to provide power to our Forward Operating Bases, which, in aggregate, will reduce consumption of liquid fuel by some 50 million gallons annually. • The Army is fielding Advanced Medium Mobile Power Sources (AAMPS) (generators) in Afghanistan. They will use 21% less fuel than our currently fielded generators – and are designed to be networked and employed with micro- and mini-grids. • The next Network Integration Evaluation will test a variety of equipment and technology to improve our operational energy posture: Operational Energy cuts across all ― JP8-powered 1kW generator, three of the other Lines of Effort: ― JP8-powered 1kW fuel cell, Soldier, Basing, and Vehicle Power. ― Modular universal battery charger, ― Soldier Worn Integrated Power Equipment System (SWIPES)Its purpose is to enhance our ability to perform our mission … often • The Army is developing a comprehensive approach to inculcating energy-informed behaviors, including a culture study and formal referred to as “mission efforts to integrate energy into training, education, and exercises. effectiveness.” • Changing behavior – and the culture which reinforces that 11 behavior – is what leaders do …
