Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENERGY: GAO found nearly 700 federal renewable energy initiatives in Fiscal Year 2010
The Government Accountability Office surveyed federal agencies to learn what renewable energy initiatives were implemented in Fiscal Year 2010. It found nearly 700. The Department of Defense had the most. "DOD’s components collectively accounted for 116 of the initiatives we identified. At DOD, we found renewable energy initiatives at the Army (30), Air Force (17), Navy (16), and Marine Corps (12). Within each of these services, the renewable energy initiatives we identified were dispersed across a number of civilian and military elements of the chain of command. At the Army, for example, responsibility for energy management activities at its facilities is shared by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment (civilian) and the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management (military). Other components of the Army share responsibility for a number of research efforts to develop technologies for the Army’s use, some of which include renewable energy. Other Army renewable energy initiatives are led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is the largest hydropower producer in the United States. In addition to the military services, we identified 41 initiatives across a number of components that report to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, such as the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics’ Office of the Assistant Secretary, Operational Energy Plans and Programs; the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency; and the Defense Logistics Agency."
