energy key performance parameter
A mandatory KPP intended to ensure combat capability of the force by balancing the energy performance of systems and the provisioning of energy to sustain systems/forces required by the operational commander under applicable threat environments. Energy KPP values that affordably manage energy demand and related energy logistics and security risks without degrading mission effectiveness of the capability solution. The Energy KPP includes, but is not limited to, considerations for optimizing fuel and electric power demand in capability solutions, in the context of the logistical supply of energy to the warfighter, as it directly affects the demand on the force to provide and protect critical energy supplies. The Energy KPP includes both fuel and electric power demand considerations in systems, including those for operating “off grid” for extended periods when necessary.
