In the constrained budget environment of recent years, the Department of Defense (DoD) has placed increasing emphasis on enhancing installation and infrastructure management capabilities. Energy management is an important component of infrastructure management. DoD has a facility energy conservation goal of reducing consumption by 30 percent by the year 2005 (measured on a square foot basis from a 1985 baseline). At the same time, DoD is attempting to comply with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, many of which have implications for energy management choices. However, shrinking defense budgets, downsizing and restructuring, and various management reforms are shifting emphasis away from energy management at DoD installations. This report documents RAND research assessing DoD's current capability to achieve energy policy goals at DoD installations. The authors identify what capability currently exists at DoD installations for implementing energy policy effectively and identify ways to enhance that capability through improved training and policy implementation.
