CLICK ICONS ABOVE FOR DETAILS ON CLEAN ENERGY PROJECTS ON MILITARY INSTALLATIONS

The Department of Defense is leading the nation in clean energy and energy efficiency — creating jobs, reducing energy expenses and driving economic growth in communities across the country. The DoD’s leadership in renewable energy, advanced biofuels and building and equipment efficiency also helps save taxpayers money and paves the way for more wide-scale commercial adoption of clean energy and energy efficiency technologies. See above and below for examples of how clean energy works for the U.S. military. And for more on how E2 has advocated for policies backed by the Department of Defense, please click here.
