Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENERGY: Senate language on energy security
The Senate Armed Services Committee has reported out its version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (S. 3454).

The accompanying report language (111-201) summarizes Section 2821:
Enhancement of energy security activities of the Department of Defense (sec. 2821)

The committee recommends a provision that would amend Chapter 173 of title 10, United States Code, to: (1) direct the Secretary of Defense to develop a comprehensive master plan for the Department of Defense (DOD), including baselines, measurement methods, metrics, milestones, and investments needed to meet DOD energy performance goals; (2) require the consideration of renewable forms of energy not only in new construction, but in repairs and renovations as well; and (3) require that specific consideration be given to roof-top solar thermal, photovoltaic, and energy reducing coating technologies; energy management control, supervisory control, and data acquisition systems; energy efficient heating ventilation and air conditioning systems; thermal windows and insulation systems; electric meters, and lighting, equipment, and appliances that are designed to use less electricity.

The committee directs the Secretary of Defense to include in the first master plan developed pursuant to this provision a report on the specific steps that the Department has taken and plans to take to ensure that specific consideration is given in all new building construction and building renovation projects to roof-top energy savings and other technologies identified in the provision. The report shall address the feasibility and advisability of using solar-power collecting structures to shade vehicles at domestic military installations, including the Pentagon parking lot.
