U.S. Military Sets 25 Percent Renewable Energy Goal

On Wednesday, The White House announced that the U.S. military will deploy 3 GW of renewable energy, including solar, wind, biomass and geothermal, by 2025.  The commitment is part of the Defense Department’s goal of meeting 25 percent of its energy needs with renewable energy by 2025.

The White House said these efforts would come at no additional cost to taxpayers, with DoD leveraging private-sector financing.

In addition, the Energy Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is funding $30 million in projects aimed at improving the capability of storage devices.  This effort includes enhancing performance of hybrid energy storage modules being developed by the Defense Department for war-fighting equipment.
