"As technology has advanced, the energy intensiveness of the military has increased to the extent that combat is now about 16 times more energy-intensive than it was in World War II."
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Clean Energy Alliance, Inc. (CEA), the national association of clean energy business incubators, announced that it is a Supporting Association for the 8th Annual Military Energy Alternatives Conference. This event provides a critical market intersection that enables the Department of Defense to clarify its programs and objectives so that private sector providers of energy-related goods and services can focus in the appropriate areas and develop responsive solutions. The conference will be in the Washington DC area on March 5-7, 2013.
“As critical as energy is to our lives, it is an even more critical element to an increasingly energy-dependent military. As technology has advanced, the energy intensiveness of the military has increased to the extent that combat is now about 16 times more energy-intensive than it was in World War II,” said James F. Groelinger, CEA’s Executive Director. “I’m pleased that CEA is able to support the 8th Annual Military Energy Alternatives Conference, which highlights the need for developments such as those being pursued by the clients of CEA’s members.”
CEA, founded a decade ago by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), focuses on developing practices and resources to support clean energy technology commercialization. Collectively, incubator members of CEA provide a complete range of business and technology development services that assist emerging clean energy technology companies in the commercialization process. Many of the client companies of CEA’s members are advancing technologies that have significant potential to address military energy requirements.
