U.S. military spending is expected to grow over the next twelve years to almost $1.8 billion in 2025, according to a new report from Pike Research. The report, titled “Renewable Energy for Military Applications”, delves into the current status and future direction of advanced energy technology at military bases and other DOD facilities. Pike Research elaborates:
The various branches of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) combine to form the single largest consumer of energy in the world, surpassing the consumption totals of more than 100 nations. Driven by a combination of legislation, national and international policy, strategic imperatives, and operational requirements, clean technologies are moving into the mainstream of DOD spending, and the DOD is now one of the most important drivers of clean energy markets in the United States.
