U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives

U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives Welcome to the official page of the U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives (OEI). Welcome to the Army Office of Energy Initiatives (OEI).

The Secretary of the Army established the OEI as the central management office for cost-effective, large-scale renewable and alternative energy projects on Army installations. The OEI implements projects that leverage private sector financing and generate at least 10 megawatts of renewable or alternative energy. To create energy secure installations, the Army begins by developing generation assets on or near Army land. The next step is to add energy storage and energy controls systems, creating “islandable” capabilities for an installation. These islandable capabilities can enable the direct routing of electricity to essential requirements in the event of a grid disruption or other power emergencies. Enhancing the Army’s energy security is operationally necessary, financially prudent, and Mission critical. Follow us on Twitter! @ArmyOEI

Mission: The Mission of the OEI is to strengthen Army energy security and sustainability by developing a comprehensive capability, and planning and executing a cost-effective portfolio of large-scale renewable and alternative energy projects that leverage private sector financing.
