"NATO Smart Energy is about empowering the soldier of the future and an important missions enabler for the modern military. It reduces cost and risks of military operations, as well as the environmental footprint of the military," Sorin Ducaru, NATO’s Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges was quoted as saying.
Some 30 experts from defense agencies and research institutes are expected to contribute to the drills that will see NATO analyze how equipment uses different energy-efficient technologies.
The exercises are scheduled to close on June 19.
NATO launched its Smart Energy program in 2011 to foster renewable energy and improved energy management.
