This event sponsored by AGRION will take place on Thursday, January 17th 2012 9:30am- 12:30pm ET. A streamed Panel Discussion is scheduled for 7:00am – 9:00am PT / 10:00am – 12:00pm ET / 16:00 – 18:00 (Paris-Frankfurt).
At AGRION’s US Offshore Wind: Benchmarks and Bellwethers roundtable, Bill Shore, CFO of Fishermen’s Energy, stated that federal procurement of renewables would top his policy wishlist for the Obama administration. With the announcement of the Energy Initiatives Task Force, which aims to fund projects and emerging technologies, this will soon be a reality. The US Army has a $7 billion budget, and is looking to be a third party investor in renewable energy projects and alternative energy technologies, which encompass micro-grid, energy storage, and fuel cell technologies.
US Army has a $7 billion budget for solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and other alternative energy technologies that it will use to reach its many energy efficiency and clean energy targets such as 3 gigawatts of renewable energy generation by 2025.
In this meeting, we will convene military officials, policymakers, renewable energy technology providers, and more to discuss the evolution of the military’s renewable energy procurement program, and its long term energy goals.
Questions that will be Answered
- What segment of the military is most energy consumptive?
- Where can the biggest impact be made?
- What emerging alternative technologies is the Department of Defense looking at?
- Will the 30 year PPA’s be extended to solar and wind projects?
