Department of Defense Energy Initiatives
Background and Issues for Congress
This report provides background information and identifies issues for the US Congress on Department of Defense (DOD) energy initiatives. DOD spends billions of dollars per year on fuel, and is pursuing numerous initiatives for reducing its fuel needs and changing the mix of energy sources that it uses. DOD’s energy initiatives pose several potential policy and oversight issues for Congress, and have been topics of discussion and debate at hearings on DOD’s proposed FY2013 budget. The decisions of Congress with regard to DOD energy initiatives could substantially affect DOD capabilities, funding requirements, and the US energy industry.
