White House to Seek $7B in Green Energy Contracts for Military
The White House announced Tuesday it is inviting contract proposals from green energy firms to boost the Army’s use of renewable energy.
The administration is making $7 billion available for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to spend on locally-generated biomass, geothermal, solar or wind energy for up to 30 years.

Focus on Innovation is Key to Strengthening U.S. Manufacturing
As U.S. manufacturing gets molded by the current administration’s policy initiatives and the political rhetoric of presidential candidates, one thing remains clear: U.S. manufacturing needs to globally dominate if the United States is to remain an economic force. Although the U.S. is the world’s largest manufacturing economy, with about 21 percent of global manufactured goods produced here, that foothold is being threatened by its own policies on taxes, energy, and trade. Many have fingered innovation as a target for strengthening U.S.
UK Aerospace, Defense and Security trade organization ADS and subsidiary Farnborough International Limited (FIL) reported that the 2012 Farnborough Airshow hosted 1,506 exhibiting companies vs 1,450 in 2010; orders for the show so far total US $72b vs $47b in 2010.
