Article Excerpt: Solar Technology, the Bright Spot in Homeland Security

By Ann-Marie Fleming, HomelandDefenseStocks.com, RenewableEnergyStocks.com
April 2005

As Homeland Security initiatives focus on protecting the current energy infrastructure and establishing energy independence, attention on renewable energy sources has heightened. With approximately 60% of the oil utilized in the U.S. being imported, often from countries openly hostile to the United States, seeking alternative energy sources has become an issue of National Security.

Within the United States alone, the renewable energy industry has received approximately $14 billion over the past 30 years to help fund its research and development. Over this time, companies have matured, developing products with increased efficiency, cost effectiveness and marketability. The industry's growth is receiving a significant boost by Homeland Security and the Department of Defense as it focuses on the pursuit of alternative energy sources as a means of securing the nation. As discussed by Dr. Jeff Leonard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Global Environment Fund, "The infiltration of interest from the Defense Department establishment in solar energy resources has begun to drive a huge amount of new funding." Ten years ago the Department of Energy and NASA were among the biggest supporters in the United States governmental structure of solar technology and today the Department of Defense's expenditures for solar technology far exceeds all others.
