"At the October 2009 Naval Energy Forum, the SECNAV [Secretary of the Navy] set an energy goal that by 2020, half of the Navy's total energy consumption, ashore and afloat, will come from alternative sources. In addition, the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations' (OPNA V's) Task Force Energy- Expeditionary (TFE-E) has two energy goals for Navy Expeditionary Units for 2020: (1) Reduce fuel consumption by 15% by changing how equipment is used. (2) Increase fuel efficiency of end items by 15% when compared to FY 2008 baseline. As a result, the Navy Expeditionary Combat Enterprise (NECE) Strategic Plan 2010 Initiative 3.4 (Tactiical Energy Security) tasked the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) to 'develop a NECC 15-year strategy to meet the Navy's goals to reduce energy co11tsumption, improve energy efficiency, and increase alternative energy use in the expeditionary forces. This energy strategy provides near, mid, and long term actions for NECC to meet SECNAV goals while maintaining mission capabilities."
