Abstract : Since the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom, there have been countless studies, assessments, and reports that have made recommendations on how to improve energy use in the expeditionary environment. While there have been many studies focused on reducing fuel demand in theater, to date, there has been no comprehensive review of existing studies, and limited data is available to draw conclusions. To address this need, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs [ASD(OEPP)] tasked the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) with reviewing all currently available energy relevant studies, assessments, and lessons learned; identifying recommendations made in those reports, appropriately categorizing those recommendations, and assessing them through various criteria (impact, investment, etc.) to measure progress for a given recommendation or category of recommendations. In this initial stage of work, the Project Delivery Team (PDT) performed a literature review to identify the results of all existing studies available dealing with expeditionary energy in the context of contingency basing. This report contains an annotated bibliography of those sources.
