Department of Defense aims for 3 GW of renewable energy by 2025

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has announced a new goal to deploy 3 GW of renewable energy – including solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal – on Army, Navy, and Air Force installations by 2025. The new renewable energy goal is part of a multi-part announcement by the Obama Administration on April 11 to increase energy security.

This effort furthers the commitment President Obama made during the State of the Union to develop 1 GW of renewable energy on Navy installations by 2020. The Air Force has also established a goal of obtaining 1 GW renewable energy by 2016, and the Army has set a goal to reach 1 GW of renewable energy by 2020. Overall, the DoD expects to fulfill 25 percent of its energy needs with renewable energy by 2025.
