ABSTRACT
The article discusses the energy challenges experienced by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and explores how it can turn energy from a major risk into a competitive edge. Some of the difficulties encountered by the DOD in terms of energy were brought about by fuel price volatility, inefficient use of energy in the battlespace and dependence on vulnerable electricity grid. It provides an analysis of the Defense Science Board's (DSB) 2008 report entitled "More Fight--Less Fuel."
