The analysis is structured along the lines of DOTMLPFI (Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities and Interoperability) framework which provides necessary analytical tools for identifying gaps within NATO’s approach to energy along its entire spectrum.

The second part provides a short overview of DOTMLPFI research framework and advantages of its application, while the final section scrutinises the institutionalisation of energy within NATO across the DOTMLPFI spectrum.
