Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorisation Act for Fiscal Year 2009 - Energy Provisions
The bill requires the Department of Defense (DoD) to consider the use of wind and solar energy for expeditionary forces to reduce the need to deliver fuel to battle areas, where electricity is typically produced by engine-driven generators. A report examining the feasibility of solar and wind energy must be submitted 120 days following enactment. It requires the DoD to conduct a study on the use of alternatives to reduce the life-cycle emissions of alternative and synthetic fuels (including coal-to-liquid fuels).
