The Energy and Environment Working Group (EnE WG) was formed at the direction of the EDA Steering Board (SB) held on 26 Jun 2014. Building on previous work conducted under EDA’s Military Green initiative, it was formed to take account of the transverse and complex nature of energy and environmental factors in the Defence sector and to offer a structured approach to all aspects of related issues that affect the EDA participating Member States (pMS).
The EnE WG is an extrovert scheme, seeking synergies and cooperating with other entities or fora of similar concerns (CF-SEDSS, DEFNET, NATO EP WG, etc)
The EnE WG supports the participating Member States (pMS)’s collective journey towards increasing the resilience of MoDs, Armed Forces and Defence technological and industrial sector to existing and emerging vulnerabilities resulting from strategic considerations concerning energy security and dependence on fossil fuels, resources security of supply, water security, and environmental change.
The EnE WG provides capability aware and strategically informed advice on Energy and Environmental factors affecting the Armed Forces of Europe, delivering tangible benefits in accordance with pMS guidance.
