Taking the Fight to Clean Energy: What the Military’s Investment in Energy Innovation for the Warfighter Means for the Rest of Us

March 5 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

The Department of Defense invests $1.6 billion a year in research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) on the energy needs of the U.S. warfighter, including solar drones, tactical microgrids, and electric ships. Because DOD’s investments are highly mission-driven, many analysts have questioned their relevance for progress on clean energy beyond the defense sector. But is that really the case?

Please join ITIF for the release of a comprehensive new report on DOD’s energy innovation effort and an expert panel discussion on its relevance to the fight to reduce carbon emissions, including ways civilian agencies might better leverage DOD’s investments.
