i. Problem: Inconsistencies in levels of energy management in some areas of the British Army (Army) have been identified, which if left unchecked, may lead to ineffective energy management practices and inefficiencies which are common in many organisations. This will have financial and environmental implications for the organisation and requires further action to properly address their use of finite energy resources and the release of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2). ii. Objective: The objective has been to identify and improve the effectiveness of energy management practices in the Army, by building upon existing energy management structure, policy and procedures and examine the value of auditing processes. iii. Methodology: A review of existing energy management practices has been undertaken with the objective of reviewing a previously issued section covering utility management issues in the Army’s mandatory Logistic Support Inspection (LSI). A new and improved LSI section called ‘Utilities Management’ has been produced and has been trialled as part of Army LSI’s in two regional Army Brigades. The outcome of the trial is documented and subsequent recommendations made for the improvement of future energy management practices within the Army. iv. Achievements: A successful trial of the new and improved section on ‘Utilities Management’ has been undertaken which actively supports the work programme of Army Divisional and Brigade Energy Advisors in compliance with Army Policy and Regulations, as well as providing guidance and support to Army unit utility programmes. Land Command, who has responsibility for the management and administration of the Army’s LSI, is reviewing the new and improved section for incorporation into the mandatory inspection Army wide.
