As the largest energy consumer in the United States, the federal government plays an important role in the country’s energy system. In recent years, a number of factors have led it to reduce fossil fuel dependence through investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency, including supply risks, high and volatile prices, and environmental impacts. The government’s efforts at setting an example in transitioning to advanced energy technologies have been especially notable at the Department of Defense (DoD). Not only is DoD by far the largest energy user within the federal government, but it also faces unique strategic issues associated with energy.
A number of DoD analyses over the last decade have cited the military’s traditional energy approach, and its fossil fuel dependence in particular, as a strategic risk and have identified renewable energy and energy efficiency investments as key risk mitigation measures. The shift in military energy strategy requires industry to redouble its work with DoD to accelerate the deployment of advanced energy technologies that improve the military’s ability to fulfill its core mission. This document briefly reviews DoD’s changing energy strategy and provides companies without prior experience working with the military some references for getting started.
This primer for advanced energy companies outlines the Department of Defense's strategic shift towards renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and provides a brief introduction to the process of becoming engaged in military procurements related to energy.
