A Green Military: Saving More than Energy

The Navy plans to have at least 50 percent of its total energy, both at shore and at sea, to be alternatives to fossil fuel by 2020

The armed forces are moving quickly to become more energy efficient, as they realize that saving energy will save soldiers’ lives.

The Pentagon says that it aims to “develop more energy-efficient weapons, embrace non-oil energy sources, and demand more energy-conscious behavior from the troops.”
