Abstract The accomplishments to date and the long-range planning of the Y-12 Energy Management and Sustainability and Stewardship programs support the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) vision for a commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability and to achievement of the Guiding Principles. Specifically, the Y-12 vision is to support the Environment, Safety and Health Policy and the DOE Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan, while promoting overall sustainability and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The mission of the Y-12 Energy Management program is to incorporate energy-efficient technologies site-wide and to position Y-12 to meet NNSA energy requirement needs through 2025 and beyond. Y-12 is committed to achieving the sustainable energy and transportation goals established in Executive Orders 13423 and 13514. Although complete accomplishment of the present goals exceed existing funding levels, Y-12 will continue to execute projects as funding becomes available or as they can be accomplished incrementally within current funding profiles. All efforts will be made to integrate energy and sustainability initiatives with ongoing site mission objectives.
