The Defense Department has awarded six teams $18 million in funds to develop and implement energy savings technologies, the Pentagon announced Tuesday.

The Pentagon said the technologies are intended to reduce energy demand and the programs coincides with the military’s new strategy for a leaner, more agile combat force.

In 2009, the Pentagon used 75 percent of its total energy resources on energy required to train, move and sustain forces, weapons and equipment for military operations.

In March, the Pentagon and the Small Business Administration will host an information session to link small businesses to the teams.

“An important objective of this fund is reaching sources of energy innovation new to the department, which primarily are small businesses,” said Andre Gudger, director of the Pentagon’s small business programs office.
