What is Energy Action Month?
Established in 2012, October is Energy Action Month. The Department of the Navy’s theme for Energy Action Month 2017 is “Energy Action = Mission Success,” in recognition of the critical role that energy plays in our ability to execute our mission requirements. Energy Action Month is the perfect time for the services to reinforce actions that our Sailors and Marines can take to optimize their energy use to boost warfighting capabilities.

Why Do the Navy and Marine Corps Recognize Energy Action Month?
Mission success depends on our ships, aircraft, and installations operating reliably and effectively. A culture of energy efficiency is foundational to the Navy and Marine Corps’ mission of ensuring stability, deterring potential adversaries, and presenting options in times of crisis, and the Department of the Navy depends on access to secure sources of energy. We are leveraging technologies and platforms, along with pragmatic fuel and energy practices, in order to boost combat effectiveness, maximize strategic options, and better protect our Sailors and Marines.

Look for ways to optimize your energy use.
