The Dept. of Defense (DOD) consumes about 60% of all energy used at federal government facilities. To encourage an increased use of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind power, (1) the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (the 2005 Act) directs DOD to consume at least 3% of its total electricity from renewable resources starting in FY 2007; (2) Executive Order 13423 (the 2007 Executive Order) directs that an amount equal to half of the statutorily required renewable energy be generated by sources placed into service in 1999 or later; and (3) the 2007 Defense Authorization Act directed that at least 25% of electricity consumed by DOD come from renewable sources in FY 2025. This report examined (1) DOD's progress toward these three key goals for consuming renewable energy in FY 2007 and 2008, (2) challenges to DOD meeting those goals, and (3) DOD's plans to meet the goals. The report reviewed relevant laws and DOD and Dept. of Energy (DOE) policy, plans, and data; interviewed agency officials; and visited DOD facilities. Includes recommendations. Figures.
