Abstract

The increase in frequency and severity of natural disasters and extreme weather events due to climate change is a growing concern for the Operational Energy Office of US Air Force (USAF). Through a series of secondary research, supply chain modelling, and analysis, this study analyzes the current climate risk to the USAF’s Aviation Fuel supply chain along the Gulf and East coasts of the United States. Leveraging these findings, this report models risk reduction through the strategic integration of Sustainable Aviation Fuel into the existing supply chain. The collection of data and modeling techniques employed in this study will enable the USAF to initiate exploration of cost-risk analysis for the integration of SAF in its supply chain operations in the future.
