Saving Lives through the Logistics of Energy Supply

Saving Lives through the Logistics of Energy Supply

DLA's mission is to support the services with the energy products necessary to conduct their missions whether training or combat. Many renewable and fuel alternatives are being implemented where possible to reduce the energy intensity baseline, but there are instances where a higher cost is paid to ensure the safety of our soldiers. Don Juhasz of the Defense Logistics Agency explains…  If you would like to have this sent right to your inbox, email us today.

Volume 1: Operational Energy in Action

Volume 1: Operational Energy in Action

Energy is a fundamental enabler of military capability. The ability of the United States to project and sustain the power necessary for defense depends on the assured delivery of this energy. It must be available at home and abroad, across air, land and sea, often through adverse weather and against determined adversaries. The Operational Energy Team has put together a two volume report on the Operational Energy Budget, as well as updated strategies, changes and challenges, a summary of the military's objectives and goals. Take a look at volume one here.

Volume Two: Implementing the Operational Energy Budget
