U.S. Military and Clean Energy12 Oct

Yesterday I attended a seminar at Emerson College in Boston on the pursuit of clean energy by the U.S. military. This event, in collaboration with the Pew Charitable Trusts and KEMA, Inc., highlighted the release of Pew’s new report From Barracks to the Battlefield: Clean Energy Innovation and America’s Armed Forces. This report finds that,” DoD clean energy investments increased 300 percent between 2006 and 2009, from $400 million to $1.2 billion, and are projected to eclipse $10 billion annually by 2030. The Pew report documents how DoD is helping to accelerate the development and deployment of clean energy technologies in three key areas: vehicle efficiency, advanced biofuels and energy efficiency and renewable energy at bases.”
