Lean, Mean and Clean: Energy Innovation and the Department of Defense
There are many obvious sources of clean energy innovation. But lately the clean energy community has begun paying attention to one not-so-obvious source: the Department of Defense. With a massive energy footprint and a mission-driven need to reduce fossil energy consumption, DOD can play a prime role accelerating clean tech development and is already seeking to become a test bed for innovative technologies. At stake are not only national security but also economic security. In this report, ITIF provides a comprehensive review of the important energy innovation activities at DOD and provides a snapshot of the role of public investment and public-private partnerships to spur transformational technologies.
