Ann Karagozian

On January 27, 2012, KCET’s SoCal Connected aired a story on the U.S. Military exploring green energy for both economic and strategic benefits. UCLA MAE Professor Ann Karagozian was quoted in the story, which is available online. Prof. Karagozian's section runs from 1:50-2:27.

From the show transcript:

Professor Ann Karagozian/UCLA: The military itself uses the vast majority of fuels and derives its energy from fuel to a far greater extent than any other entity in the U.S. government. It's over 90 percent of the fuels that are consumed within the U.S. government are consumed by the Department of Defense.

Rooney: UCLA Professor Ann Karagozian has been a scientific advisor to the Air Force.

Karagozian: The DOD is looking at new technology that could be game changers in many different ways, and we’ve seen examples of that in our daily lives.

The Internet was a military development. So was the satellite navigation, known as GPS, that finds your way on unfamiliar streets. Now the military appears to be leading the way in energy development and conservation.
