Our Next Seminar & Teleconference

Department of Defense Strategies for Energy Resilience

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

The U.S. Department of Defense has prioritized the deployment of reliable, renewable electricity to reduce the vulnerability of its installations from disruptions to the electric grid and enhance mission effectiveness. As the military services make progress in achieving their 1 GW renewable energy targets, there is increasing interest in integrating ancillary service technologies that further improve the energy resilience of installations, such as microgrids, battery storage, and fuel cells. This webinar will assess how DoD is developing guidance on energy resilience and identify private sector recommendations on how to deploy and provide third-party financing for such systems.
