Army installations are essential for the development and sustainment of operational capabilities and readiness to serve and protect the nation and its interests. Installations are small cities with a full spectrum of facility types and utility requirements that use large amounts of energy. This paper describes the process and activities underway to establish operational requirements and investment policy for Army installation energy security. The military environment is described in which the installation mission requirements and the future investment policy are being crafted. Military mission must be mapped to power requirements such that mission readiness impacts are quantifiable for a multitude of power outage or power quality anomaly scenarios. The paper draws from real-time discussions that the author’s organization sponsored December 2006 on Army Installation Energy Security & Independence to carry out the mission of Army installations. These insights are applicable to any campus-like entity.
