Acting U.S. Navy Secretary Thomas Modly has signed a document requiring the Department of the Navy to implement resiliency, efficiency and reliability approaches for energy systems on mission-critical shore infrastructure.

DON must adopt measures to secure power generation equipment in accordance with its Energy Security Framework as part of the Installation Energy Resilience Strategy, the Navy said Wednesday.

The document offers a information about congressional authorities intended to drive industry-community partnerships and case studies of energy resilience projects at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California and the Naval Support Activity facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

A list of resources and references from the Department of Defense is also included in the strategy.

“With the guidance, priorities, and metrics in this energy plan, we can focus command attention and scarce resources at every level to deliver substantive results for the enhanced readiness and resilience of our forces,” Modly said.

The Navy noted that aging energy systems that help power shipyards, weapons systems, training ranges and other naval assets threaten warfighter readiness.
