The Secretary of the Army established the OEI to serve as the central management office for Army’s development, implementation and oversight of large-scale renewable and alternative energy projects.  In collaboration with multiple acquisition partners including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Defense Logistics Agency - Energy and Mission and Installation Contracting Command, the OEI leverages private financing to secure Army installations with energy that is resilient, affordable and sustainable. 

The OEI seeks to develop “islandable” projects, or projects that allow installations to maintain mission critical operations when the electric grid goes down.  By including generation assets on or near Army land with energy storage and controls, the Army 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 and resilience is operationally necessary, financially prudent, and mission critical.
