The 2018 National Defense Strategy outlines a security environment characterized by strategic competition and a “lethal and disruptive battlefield, combined across domains, and conducted at increasing speed and reach,” where even the “homeland is no longer a sanctuary.” These multi-domain risks are challenging the assured delivery of energy to the Joint forces. While operational energy is an essential component of our warfighting capability, longer operating distances, remote and austere geography, and anti-access/area denial threats are challenging the Department’s ability to assure the delivery of fuel. As the ability to deliver energy is placed at risk, so too is the Department’s ability to deploy and sustain forces around the globe.
The Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy oversees the DoD's programs related to installation energy, water use management and the cybersecurity of facility related control systems. The ODASD is responsible for issuing policy and guidance, coordinating the Defense Department’s Installation Energy Strategy, engaging with DoD Components, and coordinating all congressional reports related to Energy programs.
Ms. Lisa A. Jung, a member of the Senior Executive Service, is the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Sustainment. She is responsible for policy and oversight of the Department’s installation/facility energy programs with a primary focus on improving energy performance of DoD installations to reduce costs, improve energy security and achieve mandated Administration and Department goals.
