Defense Energy: Observations on DODäó»s Investments in Alternative Fuels
Zina D. Merritt (au)
The Department of Defense (DOD) is the single largest consumer of energy in the federal government, spending billions of dollars annually. One of DODäó»s strategic operational energy goals is to expand its energy supply options. Investing in alternative fuels -- liquid fuels, derived from non-petroleum feedstocks, whose use does not necessitate any modifications to platforms and equipment -- represents one means of potentially achieving this goal. This report reviewed the extent to which DOD (1) has purchased alternative fuels, and has demonstrated they can meet its safety, performance, and reliability standards; (2) has a process for purchasing alternative fuels for military operations that takes into consideration any cost differences between alternative and conventional fuels; and (3) has used the Defense Production Act (DPA) authorities to promote the development of a domestic biofuel industry. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
