Energy

Great Green Fleet

Great Green Fleet

The Great Green Fleet (GGF) is a year-long, Department of the Navy initiative that demonstrates the sea service’s efforts to transform its energy use. As one of the Secretary of the Navy’s key energy goals, the purpose of the GGF is to make our Sailors and Marines better warfighters, able to go farther, stay longer and deliver more firepower. Secretary Mabus chose the name Great Green Fleet to honor President Theodore Roosevelt’s Great White Fleet, which helped usher in America as a global power on the world stage at the beginning of the 20th Century. The GGF will usher in the next era of Dept. of Navy energy innovation.

Throughout 2016, other Dept. of Navy platforms including ships, aircraft, amphibious and expeditionary forces, as well as shore installations, will participate in the GGF by using energy efficient systems, operational procedures, and/or alternative fuel during the course of planned mission functions worldwide.

Ashore, DON installations have in procurement 1.1 gigawatts of renewable energy – or about one-half of overall DON power requirements as of January 2016. Renewable energy projects at our facilities can help increase resiliency by enabling them to continue operations in the event of a commercial grid disruption.

 

Shore Energy Approach

 

The Navy’s shore energy approach has three pillars: energy efficiency, culture and behavior, and renewable energy and sustainability.  Together, these focus areas will increase our Nation’s energy security as well as enable the Navy to comply with federal mandates and meet the Secretary of the Navy’s energy goals.
