Deployable Wind Turbines in Defense and Disaster Response

Feb. 13, 2020

DOE’s Sandia National Laboratories recently published a report that assesses the opportunity for deployable wind energy systems to meet the energy needs of defense and disaster response activities. This market assessment, conducted with partners at DOE’s Idaho National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, summarizes information gathered from public reports, recent conferences on defense energy needs, and direct interviews with military and industry stakeholders.

Read the report to learn about the challenges and strategies of the U.S. military to develop alternatives to liquid fuel use to support foreign defense and humanitarian activities, and the opportunities to develop optimal deployable wind technologies that can provide valuable energy globally.
