The article proposes a method to be used by the U.S. Department of Defense in leading an immediate and viable long-term strategy to replace petroleum as the primary energy source in U.S., in order to maintain all the necessary strategic and operational capabilities of U.S. security from 2050 onwards. It also suggests a three-stage transformation strategy to illustrate the incremental issues that will arise during the proposed wholesale energy transformation.
