Army to Partner With Industry For Up To $7 Billion in Renewable-Energy Projects
From the U.S Army’s official News Page (http://www.army.mil/news/):
Writer J.D. Leipold writes that the Army will be partnering with renewable energy providers and industry — in wind, solar, biomass and geothermal — up to $7 billion.
“Speaking at a media roundtable March 15, Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy & Environment, said the cumulative investment will help the Army reach its goal of having 25 percent of the Army’s energy come from renewable sources by 2025.
“In addition to energy conservation, installations will strive to establish alternative forms of energy that will allow them to “island” or continue to operate should the power grid fail.”
