A new report from The Pew Charitable Trusts finds that US Department of Defence clean energy investments increased 300 % between 2006 and 2009, from $ 400 mm to $ 1.2 bn, and that they are projected to eclipse $ 10 bn annually by 2030.
The military has set an overall target of obtaining 25 % of its energy from renewable sources by 2025.

The Pew report documents how the Defence Department 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.
