The Navy “Goes Green”

During a “DODLive” bloggers round table, Navy Rear Adm. Philip H. Cullom, director of energy and environmental readiness for the Chief of Naval Operations, says, “It’s not just about natural security, because that’s what most people think of when they think about going green. Our energy program also strengthens national security.”

The Navy’s goal is to not just limit them to one source of energy, such as petroleum. By going green, it creates various sources. By 2020, they would like to have 50 percent of total Navy Department energy consumption to come from different energy sources. They would also like to reduce the use of petroleum in the non-tactical commercial fleet by 50 percent and to evaluate energy factors

They hope that working with the Air Force and the Coast Guard will help them on the path to become greener, and leave that “green footprint.”
