Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy - Energy

The Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy) office was established in March 2010 in order to develop and oversee Department of the Navy policy on matters pertaining to operational and shore energy initiatives for the Secretary of the Navy. The Navy's energy strategy takes the "long view" necessary to keep our Navy and our nation strong. Bottom line: incorporating energy initiatives now will allow us to more effectively carry out our mission in the future.

In 2009, former Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus issued a number of energy goals in order to increase energy security, promote energy efficiencies that improve warfighting capabilities, and reduce our reliance on foreign sources of fossil fuels through investments in renewable energy, including biofuel and other alternative sources (wind, solar, and geothermal).

Our expeditionary energy efforts are designed to reduce our vulnerability to attacks associated with long fuel supply transport lines and replenishing at sea operations. At home, investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency measures (e.g., improving building efficiency, upgrading lighting systems, and modernizing HVAC systems) help insulate our critical infrastructure from the fragility of the commercial power grid.

Through past and continued efforts in initiatives like the "2012 Great Green Fleet Demonstration" and the "One Gigawatt Task Force", the DASN Energy office strives to bring the Department of the Navy closer to achieving the Department of the Navy's energy goals, and toward the greater goal of total energy independence and security.
