New technological breakthroughs to power devices and machinery are at the forefront in the long war, with the key thrusts being to reduce weight, increase efficiency, and outlast mission durations all at the lowest cost possible. The Office of Naval Research is sponsoring projects to boost power density in batteries while the U.S. Army planners are also funding research into portable power generation. With President Obama earmarking $300 million dollars for the Department of Defense research in renewable energy, this timely event will examine the immediate need to utilize new emerging technologies to overcome current fuel consumption rates and address the need for improved large and small scale power.
