Army’s Green Warrior Convoy Emphasizes DOD’s Role in Energy Innovation

Within the last fiscal year, all three military branches committed to adding one gigawatt each of renewable energy to installations – each branch has suggested individual estimates for how long this goal will take to achieve, ranging between five years (for the Air Force) and 15 years (for the Army). These goals will be met with the help of tangible investments in innovation. As the military branches’ roles in advanced energy research and development grow in significance, it is important to keep track of the funding allocated to clean technology development, as well as the kind of technology portfolio each branch is maintaining.
