While the military clearly recognizes the threat of climate change to our national and global security, they are also one of the largest users of fossil fuel in the world. These concerns, combined with the vulnerability of bases relying on vulnerable electric grids and the tactical exposure associated with transporting fuel into battle, have spurred the military to shift to more secure forms of energy. Whether its massive solar arrays on bases, distributed microgrids, or better batteries, the military is leading the way on innovation and deployment of advanced energy.
Join us for a discussion with Vice Admiral Lee Gunn, USN (ret.), Lieutenant General Norman Seip, USAF (ret.), and Brigadier General Stephen Cheney, USMC (ret.) on why this matters to the military, what they are already doing in the clean energy space, and what they’re planning for the future.
