The Department of Defense has recently completed four of the 15 targets identified in the Operational Energy Strategy. Download this report for a process update on which goals/targets have been completed, the DoD's operational energy goals for 2019, as well as a look at how the Department's FY 2019 budget complements the objectives set forth in the 2018 National Defense Strategy.
At ARPA-E there have been several breakthroughs in energy-storage technology that could transform the electrical grid. We spoke with the Senior Commercialization Advisor, Ryan Umstattd, PhD, about this, and the future of energy-storage as well as how current projects and new technologies could be implemented into the military.

Mr. Jose Collazo is a Chemical Engineer at the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC). He discusses with us some of the solutions that CERDEC is pioneering under the Advanced Integrated Soldier Power (AISP) and Energy Informed Operations Science Technology Objective. Mr. Collazo also explains what he believe is the best option in reducing energy demand and logistics operations.If you would like to receive this content piece via email, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send it right over to you!
Energy is a fundamental enabler of military capability. The ability of the United States to project and sustain the power necessary for defense depends on the assured delivery of this energy. It must be available at home and abroad, across air, land and sea, often through adverse weather and against determined adversaries. The Operational Energy Team has put together a two volume report on the Operational Energy Budget, as well as updated strategies, changes and challenges, a summary of the military's objectives and goals. Take a look at volume one here.
This case study investigates how the Fred Olsen wave energy conversion technology can be applied as a power source and communication platform for an autonomous underwater vehicle AUVs charging station at 1,500 feet.
