January 14, 2009 1 / 1 The first six "neighborhood electric vehicles" were delivered to the Army Jan. 12 during a ceremony at Fort Myer, Va. The ceremonial delivery of the NEVs, which are entirely electric powered, represents the beginning of a leasing action by the Army to obtain more than 4,000 of the vehicles. The use of NEVs by the Army is part of its comprehensive and far-reaching energy security initiative to ease its dependence on fossil fuels. As part of that initiative, the service will be leveraging electric vehicles and other technologies that exist today, as well as exploring emerging technologies. VIEW ORIGINAL
The importance of today's roll-out of the NEVs and my involvement, is to show industry that the Army is serious about reducing energy consumption, increasing energy efficiency, (and) exploring alternative fuels and energy, while creating a culture of energy awareness throughout the Army.
