Transformative Reductions in Operational Energy Consumption

Improving the energy efficiency of the Department of Defense’s operational forces is vital to reducing vulnerability of supply lines and increasing operational capability. Transformative Reductions in Operational Energy Consumption (TROPEC) identifies potential materiel and non-materiel solutions for use in expeditionary and contingency environments within the Pacific Area of Operations. Innovations are assessed by their impacts, limitations, and utility to meet both technical and warfighter objectives. If you have a technology or approach that can reduce energy use at expeditionary military outposts — especially those located in tropical environments — you are encouraged to apply to the TROPEC program for evaluation and demonstration through our
