The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Tactical Defense Media interviewed Gal Luft, Co-Director of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), the publisher of the Journal of Energy Security, on a potential role of biofuels in a military’s energy mix, and a military’s potential role in biofuels development. According to Luft, “With respect to biofuels, the only role I see for the military is in the testing and certification of fuels to make sure they can be used should they prove economically viable. What I don’t want to see from the military is mass adoption of fuels that are in many cases much more expensive – [as] this would come at the expense of other needs.” Read more directly from November 2013 DoD Power, Energy & Propulsion.
