heal.abstract
Climate change and the ambition to become independent from fuels like petrol and coal forced Countries and consequently Military authorities, worldwide, to present environmental goals, to reduce the use of energy and to intensify the effort for increasing the production of energy from renewable energy sources. One of the goals is to be- come Net Zero in relation to fossil fuels in both public and military facilities. In Net Zero the quantity of energy (fossil fuel-based) used in a year, equals the amount of energy produced from renewable sources in the facility. Nevertheless, although billions of dollars have been spend in Environmental-Energy programs/projects worldwide (including military forces), the World Total Primary Energy Supply increased from 1971 to 2015 by almost 2.5 times, Total Final Consumption, more than doubled in the same period and Annual GHG emissions have increased between 2000–10, with the most important drivers being Economic and Population growth. The dissertation provided a review on the implementation of Environmental strategies-projects-programs on NATO-US DoD facilities and an assessment of their effectiveness. Regarding the methodology of research, the dissertation was based on quantitative research methods and used secondary data not only from fourteen official NATO, US DOD and Public Agencies reports (Environmental Performance Indicators), but also used/presented data from a specific ongoing energy program/project in a US military camp that could eventually become the model of the environmental friendly camp of the future. Finally, the conclusions present that the environmental strategies- projects-programs of US DoD are effective , with no crucial gaps due the fact that are steadily achieving their goals , in contrast to NATO ones which are not effective due to a lack of cooperation-communication between member states. Probably, these conclusions may contribute to a better evaluation of the Environmental programs/projects in the alliance.
