The US Army has launched the Energy Initiatives Office (EIO) Task Force to oversee the development of large-scale renewable energy projects, Army secretary John McHugh said.

“The Energy Initiatives Office Task Force will help the Army build resilience through renewable energy while streamlining our business practices so developers can invest in and build an economically viable, large-scale renewable energy infrastructure,” McHugh added.

The army will use the Task Force’s expertise to address energy security challenges, increasing fuel prices, and rigid federal mandates.

The EIO Task Force, part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment will be operational by 15 September 2011.

The army also has plans to engage private industry for strategic and financial collaboration in support of the army’s installation energy needs.

The US army is utilising opportunities to draw power from alternative or renewable energy sources to reach its goal of 25% renewable energy by 2025.
