The U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives is the central management office for large scale renewable energy projects leveraging third-party financing to bring energy resiliency to our Army installations. I would like to thank Professor Light for including the efforts of what is now the Office of Energy Initiatives in her paper. It was the success of the original task force that brought about the transition to an enduring office last year. The United States Army has long recognized that if we are to be successful in our primary national defense mission, we have an obligation to ensure that our Soldiers today—and the Soldiers of the future—have the land, water, and air resources they need to train; a healthy environment in which to live; and the support of the local communities of the American people.

Amanda Simpson is the Executive Director of the Office of Energy Initiatives, U.S. Department of the Army.
