Powering the Armed Forces: Meeting the Military’s Energy Challenges

Powering the Armed Forces: Meeting the Military’s Energy Challenges by Gary Roug

Powering the Armed Forces offers a perspective on the impressive work now under way in the US military forces to address energy challenges and ultimately achieve energy security. Drawn from a Hoover Institution conference in December 2011, the contributors reveal how energy critically relates to our national security mission and to the effectiveness and safety of our men and women fighting on land, at sea, and in the air—and show that the Defense Department is committed to improving our nation’s energy position.
