Defense Officials Take Active Interest in Green Energy

The Pentagon plans to spend $300 million of its $7.4 billion share of the economic stimulus package to accelerate conservation and alternative-energy development, according to The Washington Post.

Alan R. Shaffer, director of defense research and engineering at the Pentagon, acknowledges that $300 million – although a lot of money – is a modest sum to invest in alternative energy.

But, Shaffer told The Post, the money will help speed up work already under way. In one project, the Pentagon is developing lightweight photo-voltaic mats that can draw solar power to run equipment. In another, officials are working on mobile mini-refineries that turn waste generated in the field – recyclables and plain old garbage – into biodiesel.

Other ventures, such as converting algae into a type of jet fuel and refining hybrid engines for use by military vehicles, also hold promise. Officials say some efforts, such as improving the application of spray-foam insulation for tents in Iraq, have already proven successful, saving millions of dollars in energy costs.
