Energy: A Conversation About Our National Addiction An Inter Agency Learning Opportunity
Biofuels' Potential, Risks and Implications National and Global Perspectives.
Dr. Michael Pacheco, National Renewal Energy Lab Suzanne Hunt, Worldwatch Institute
Monday July 17th, 2006 6:00 to 8:30 pm Doubletree Hotel, 300 Army Navy Dr, Crystal City, VA
The DoD Under Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics and the Office of Force Transformation are pleased to invite you to attend the fifth of a monthly series on "Energy: A Conversation About Our National Addiction." This Conversation series explores the central role energy plays in achieving national and program goals. More information about this series is available at our website: www.nps.edu/cebrowski/conversation.html.
Biomass derived from plants or animal waste is a renewable source of energy. (See wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biofuel ). Liquid biofuels for transportation such as biodiesel, methanol, or ethanol can be produced from biomass. Heat can be obtained by reprocessing organic waste. There are disputes concerning the potential for biomass to replace petroleum and other fossil fuels as a sustainable source of energy and also about the environmental impacts of energy from biomass. This Conversation aims to clarify the key issues sufficiently to enable policymakers and those who influence them to ask relevant questions about both short term and long term ramifications of our energy use decisions and options.
Why is the DoD hosting this series? Just as the Defense Department played a critical role in forging the information revolution in past decades, so can the Department play a similar critical role in fueling the energy revolution in coming decades. Why are you invited? Because there are positive and negative outcomes of decisions you make dependent upon your understanding of energy. We are all stakeholders in addressing the efficiency, conservation, secure sourcing, and cost reduction of energy. It is complicated with no easy answers. There are NO SILVER BULLETS. Come learn with us.
