Installation Energy offers acquisition support for facility energy requirements, such as; coal, natural gas and electricity commodity purchase support, renewable energy credit purchases, long term renewable energy project development, energy savings performance initiatives, and coordinates for the Department of Defense’s participation in electricity demand response programs.




Coal Program


Installation Energy serves as the centralized procurement agent for the procurement, testing and delivery of coal to DoD and federal civilian agencies within the continental U.S. The coal program has awarded both single and multiyear contracts. The program is also currently supporting the delivery of bituminous and subbituminous coal annually to the Army, Navy, Air Force and various federal civilian locations. For more information on the coal program, please contact dlaenergy.coalteam@dla.mil.

Electricity  Program


Installation Energy executes competitive acquisition of retail open access for the DoD and federal civilian agencies in states that have implemented deregulation. DoD components are encouraged to partner with Installation Energy and aggregate regional electricity requirements to competitively procure electricity and ancillary services. For more information on the electricity program, please contact dlaenergy.eteam@dla.mil.


Demand Response


Installation Energy assists customers with enrollment in demand response programs in order to support grid reliability. Installation Energy has signed agreements with multiple curtailment service providers across the U.S. and is actively issuing task orders for customer participation in load reduction programs during times of peak demand in return for financial incentives. Since the startup of the demand response program, Installation Energy has supported more than 60 DoD and federal civilian customer sites in demand response participation. For more information on the demand response program, please contact dlaenergy.eteam@dla.mil.


Renewable Energy Credit Program


Installation Energy is the primary DoD contracting agent for purchasing renewable energy credits to meet our customer’s renewable energy goals. Since the startup of the REC program, Installation Energy has procured renewable electricity generated from wind, biomass, landfill gas, municipal solid waste, and hydroelectric resources in the form of RECs.  For more information on the REC program, please contact dlaenergy.eteam@dla.mil.


Energy Savings Performance Contracts and Renewable Energy Program


Installation Energy is one of DoD’s contracting agents for meeting established energy efficiency and renewable energy goals. Installation Energy assists customers in determining which contractual and financing vehicles are applicable to their renewable energy or energy conservation effort. Installation Energy has awarded ESPCs for DoD (primarily Army) making it possible for them to meet the specified energy reduction goals. Additionally, multiple renewable energy and ESPC initiatives are in the planning or acquisition phase in support of the Army and other DoD activities. For more information on the ESPC and/or renewable energy programs, please contact dlaenergy.repteam@dla.mil.


Natural Gas


Installation Energy is DoD’s central procurement agency for direct supply natural gas. It is DoD’s policy to competitively acquire direct supply natural gas under the natural gas program when cost effective and the program has the same degree of supply reliability as other practical alternative energy sources. In fiscal 2011, natural gas contracts averaged 23 percent in cost avoidance savings as compared to local utility provider rates. For more information on the natural gas program, please contact dlaenergy.ngteam@dla.mil.
