Energy Action Month

What is Energy Action Month?

Energy Action Month (EAM) is a Federal Government-wide program that promotes sustainability and energy efficiency, while encouraging the smart use of energy, water, and transportation resources. EAM is designed to increase attention to energy use, and to develop energy efficient behaviors that will continue throughout the year. 

Energy is critical to the Department of the Navy’s (DoN) ability to accomplish its mission – to provide the global presence necessary to ensure stability, deter potential adversaries, and present options in times of crisis.

You can no longer draw a bright line between our shore Installations and forward operations. 
Navy shore Installations play a critical role in promoting readiness, generating the force structure necessary for mission success, and enabling combat operations. Through improved energy efficiency and increased utilization of renewable energy at our Installations, the Navy gains two advantages:

  • Strategic Advantage - Diversifying our energy supply to incorporate alternative energy sources like renewables increases our Installations’ resilience, so that we can continue operations in the event of a commercial grid failure.

  • Force Protection Advantage - Transforming energy usage and innovating base systems improves our energy resiliency, reducing vulnerabilities to Sailors and providing a reliable source of energy and water to Navy facilities.
