Green Defense Technology : Triple Net Zero Energy, Water and Waste Models Applications (Hardcover)
About this item
It is widely recognized that implementation of policies to benefit environmental sustainability, energy security, and preparedness at both military installations and small cities are imperative, since energy is intricately linked to the entire set of net zero goals and vision. This book focuses on the ways in which military installations and small cities can implement and integrate triple net planning and energy, water, and waste sustainability strategies into broad installation operational management, arrive at the best decision, create policy and communicate effectively to stakeholders. Current and emerging technologies, methods, and frameworks for energy conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy are explored within the context of triple net zero implementation practice.
There is recognition that there are a plenty of technological solutions that can be used in order to achieve triple net zero outcomes. However, there are two issues that need to be tackled that appear to be common in both military and civilian arenas. First, when a systemic view is adopted already in the planning phases, it is possible neutralize and minimize potential negative outcomes in the long run. Second, without significant political backing and appropriate policy measures and incentives, it is unlikely that transitions towards overall sustainability are reached.
