How the U.S. Army approaches net zero energy

July 26, 2017

The U.S. Army needs to be at net zero, says Kristine Kingery, director of energy security and sustainability policy for the military. 

"How can we go with the 'N' state?" she asked in a conversation during VERGE Hawaii 17. "In the army, everything has to be tied back to readiness." 

She discusses how operating on renewable energy is mission critical for the U.S. Army, why energy independence is critical for the nation's security and how collaborations help get there.
