The Department of Defense (DoD) has a goal to produce or procure at least 25 percent of energy from renewable sources by Fiscal Year 2025. As of 2016, 12.6 percent of DoD’s energy was coming from renewable sources.
In its quest to go further, while managing its solid waste, individual branches have partnered with industry on waste-to-energy (WTE) projects and explored the feasibility of running their own projects.
DoD engages in WTE projects for environmental benefits and public health benefits, but, says Heather Babb, Department of Defense spokeswoman, “If we can get heat, hot water or electricity in the process, that means less traditional fuel is consumed and less fuel-related logistical burden for forward-operating bases.”
Powerhouse Energy Group (LON:PHE) are a leading developer of on-site clean energy systems and long term energy off-take services, using renewable and waste feedstocks to generate electric and thermal energy in an economically and environmentally responsible manner.
