I don't know if this is what you meant, but here are the findings and recommendations, minus the discussion.

Finding #1: The recommendations from the 2001 Defense Science Board Task
Force Report “More Capable Warfighting Through Reduced Fuel Burden” have
not been implemented.

Finding #2: Critical national security and Homeland defense missions are at an
unacceptably high risk of extended outage from failure of the grid.

Finding #3: The Department lacks the strategy, policies, metrics, information,
and governance structure necessary to properly manage its energy risks.

Finding #4: There are technologies available now to make DoD systems more
energy efficient, but they are undervalued, slowing their implementation and
resulting in inadequate future S&T investments.

Finding #5: There are many opportunities to reduce energy demand by changing
wasteful operational practices and procedures.

Finding #6: Operational risks from fuel disruption require demand-side remedies;
mission risks from electricity disruption to installations require both demand- and
supply-side remedies.

Recommendation #1: Accelerate efforts to implement energy efficiency Key
Performance Parameters (KPPs) and use the Fully Burdened Cost of Fuel (FBCF),
to inform all acquisition trades and analyses about their energy consequences,
as recommended by the 2001 Task Force.

Recommendation #2: Reduce the risk to critical missions at fixed installations
from loss of commercial power and other critical national infrastructure.

Recommendation #3: Establish a Department-wide strategic plan that establishes
measurable goals, achieves the business process changes recommended by the
2001 DSB report and establishes clear responsibility and accountability.

Recommendation #4: Invest in energy efficient and alternative energy
technologies to a level commensurate with their operational and financial value.

Recommendation #5: Identify and exploit near-term opportunities to reduce
energy use through policies and incentives that change operational procedures.

I tried to cut and paste but it didn't work. Thanks.

No problem SethB just trying to help out. I got extra tools on my computer.
