FACT SHEET: DOD Installation Energy

share this

Military installations are important for preparing, training and housing warfighters. These bases are the staging grounds for emergency response scenarios such as responding to natural disasters. They are therefore critical to national security.

The U.S. Department of Defense owns and operates nearly 300,000 buildings at home and abroad. To power the 2.3 billion square feet of space, DoD relies on the civilian power grid for 99% of its electricity needs.

A disruption of electric power – whether from a natural disaster, a cyber attack, or simply a grid malfunction – would interfere with mission preparedness.

DoD is undertaking ambitious efforts to install renewable energy and energy storage at its military installations. This fact sheet details some of the military’s efforts to improve resiliency and redundancy on its bases through clean energy.
