Abstract : The primary issues affecting energy options are those of availability, affordability, sustainability, and security. Since energy resources are unevenly distributed around the world, and the impacts of energy consumption have global reach in both environmental and political terms, any meaningful review of energy-related issues must take a global perspective. This work synopsizes world and national energy issues (including energy source options, resource stocks, and future prognosis) in the context of how Army installations need to respond to changing trends. This report presents implications of actions that may be taken in response to the national and world energy situation, to help the Army to make informed choices on energy utilization that will contribute to sustaining the Army's mission.
