Department of the Navy Energy Policy, Budget, Technology and Culture--A Pentagon Journey of Discovery
MetadataShow full item record
Mr. Karnig Ohannessian, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Environment)The bottom line consideration of the Department of the Navy's energy initiatives is: if it's good for the warfighter and readiness, or has a strong business case, we should do it. Packed in that bottom line is an incredibly complex interplay of policy, budget, technology and culture that evolves over time. A successful Pentagon program puts these key pieces in place and keeps them working in harmony. Our robust energy program must meet these challenges by adapting to new information and lessons learned. As internal and external stakeholder experiences and opinions of the value of energy investments change, navigating the program through the Pentagon becomes an interesting journey of discovery. We will discuss how the value of Dept. of the Navy energy investments is assessed, what the warfighters and investors think, how policy and oversight mechanisms function, and how practical reality shapes decision-making as the technologies mature and become available to the users. We will also discuss how the Navy and Marine Corps have made pragmatic progress on energy initiatives, and how we can preserve and build upon that progress in ways that enhance warfighting and readiness or make good business sense.
