There are many obvious sources of clean energy innovation. But lately the clean energy community has begun paying attention to one not-so-obvious source: the Department of Defense. With a massive energy footprint and a mission-driven need to reduce fossil energy consumption, DOD can play a prime role accelerating cleantech development and is already seeking to become a test bed for innovative technologies. ITIF, the Information Technology Industry Council, and the Digital Energy Solutions Campaign host a discussion with members of Congress, senior leaders from DOD, as well as leading thinkers in the private and NGO sectors.
