When EITF opened it doors, a commitment was made to communicate frequently with stakeholders to exchange information on renewable energy initiatives, technologies and potential project opportunities.  On 1 October 2014, the Secretary of the Army established the Office of Energy Initiatives.  OEI News formally known as EITF news is one more way to keep this commitment.  The intent of OEI news is to keep you informed about OEI large-scale renewable energy projects and current hot topics.
