Sustainability: Preserving Choice for the Army
- Deputy Assistant of the Army, Energy and Sustainability
The Army's ability to accomplish its global mission depends on secure, uninterrupted access to power, energy, water, and land. In today's complex environment and energy market, the mission's effectiveness is at risk due to dependence on increasingly expensive fossil fuels and a reliance on a fragile electric infrastructure.
The development of Army-wide sustainability principles coupled with investments, training, education, and facilities management can improve the Army's overall security and in turn, perform its global mission.
Richard Kidd is responsible for overall program direction, establishment of policies, development and refinement of strategies, and oversight for implementation of all programs and initiatives related to energy security and sustainability within the Army.
