"Slowly but surely, new technologies will allow us to change the way we plan our missions, procure equipment, and conduct campaigns. Solar power and microgrids for bases, better insulation for mobile camps, fuel cells to power the equipment of individual soldiers, biofuels for military vehicles – the possibilities are endless", Ambassador Gábor Iklódy, NATO Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges said. “We are not investing in energy saving and environmentally friendly technologies because they are “politically correct”. We are investing in them because they make sense: they are the key to success in our military missions.“
The event was organised by NATO, the Lithuanian Energy Security Centre and the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
