NATO Military Advice on Energy Efficiency and Standardization: Best Practices and Lessons Identified

Operational energy demand is one of the driving factors that influence the design and footprint of the logistic support structure for operations, both deployed within theatre and across tactical to strategic lines of communication.  Reductions in deployed energy demand through enhanced energy efficiency have a direct influence on the agility and sustainability of deployed forces. Smart  energy solutions, both materiel (equipment) and non- materiel (management tools) need to be analyzed, tested and implemented  in order to transform the  traditional view on energy as an enabling commodity towards the energy as a force multiplier, which directly influences military capabilities and operational outcome. This presentation aims to: 1. highlight advantages of operational and materiel standardization for enhancing energy efficiency among NATO, nations and partners; 2. Observe current energy efficiency standardization proposals derived form exercise Capable Logistician 2015, 3. Discuss standardization way ahead for energy efficiency.
