Background

With demanding challenges of meeting new P&E policy

which elevates fuel demand as a prominent war
fighting capability concern
, a discussion is required to examine and

understand the direction and generation of
an effective

energy
-
related

S&T

portfolio.


The applied challenge is to incorporate the latest advances world
-
wide to improve transportation efficiency and lower comprehensive fuel usage. Advances in battery
tec
hnology, power electronics, synthetic fuels, and vehicle systems controls have changed the state of
transportation technology.
The analytic challenge is to determine the value of taking risk in or investing in one
energy technology or another to reduce en
ergy demand and improve supply availability in the future and current
force.


Purpose

To meet
the following

goal
s
, leading members of the S&T community will facilitate a discussion
of their needs
related to getting clearer information, “market demand” sign
als and decision
-
support tools to make more
defendable investment (time, budget, risk)

choices over
the near
and

long term
related to energy
-
related
technologies and design. An assumption in this statement is that neither OSD, the Joint Staff, COCOMs nor
Service leaders are sending clear strategy nor prioritization “signals” to the military or commercial S&T
community regarding military energy needs. This panel should contemplate the assumptions and findings of the
recent Defense Science Board Task Force
on DoD Energy Strategy, related to energy technology and the
sufficiency of the indicators provided to prioritize and hedge basic S&T development.


Goals



Develop an S&T
-
centric definition or description of how energy affects military capability


Platfor
m level?
Unit level? Fixed installations?



Categorize energy technology areas relevant to DoD capabilities and needs

(ex. Tactical vehicle demand
reduction vs. installation demand reduction; lighter
-
weight materials vs. lower
-
power electronics; cost
red
uction in scaling
-
up manufacturing of exquisite technologies vs. basic science; etc.)
.



Incorporate research accomplished by DOE and DOT in government
-
sponsored activities related to
advanced energy optimization, especially batteries and power electronics.



Frame

the technological readiness risks of various energy
-
related
technolog
ies



Explain
how the S&T community informs decision
-
makers on how to prioritize between tech investments in
different areas
, and discuss how this could be improved, citing formal and

informal DoD processes
.



Develop a statement about what areas of technology development offer the most promise in reducing the
energy demand of current

US forces

vs.

future US forces
,

with minimal to no negative impact on capability
.



Investigate and report

on the potential for capability
increases

from technical advances that can reduce
energy demand, while attempting to prioritize higher and lower
-
impact technologies and technology
development paths
.
