The Fayetteville Observer  reports that “the military historically has been at the forefront of developing new power sources, and now the U.S. military is at the tip of the spear for clean energy, too, according to a new report by the Pew Charitable Trusts.”  

“From steam-powered warships to nuclear-powered submarines, the latest energy technologies have played important roles in past armed forces.”  

“The Department of Defense is using the latest technologies and leveraging private-sector capabilities to save money and become more efficient and less reliant on the nation’s aging commercial power grid, according to Pew’s new report ‘Power Surge.'”
