Building Military Power: Deploying EaaS Microgrids Using Private Capital at Military Installations 

Deploying microgrids is a key resilience objective for the DoD. Existing EUL and PPA procurement authorities for microgrids can be combined into an Energy as a Service procurement model. The EaaS model draws from the EUL’s authority to execute land leases for the siting of energy infrastructure (microgrids) on DoD installations. It also draws from the PPA’s authority that enables a energy developer to contract with a DoD agency by selling energy in exchange for its services in financing, designing, building, owning, operating, and maintaining energy infrastructure. 

Top 10 DERs that add energy resilience to your facility

Distributed energy resources, or DERs, can do a lot to meet your business’ unique energy needs efficiently, reliably, and with the level of resilience you need.  Integrated DER systems like microgrids are designed to complement, supplement, or even replace traditional electrical systems and grid reliance. They’re small-scale energy distribution and storage technologies that localize power […]

How much does a power disruption cost your facility?

Whether you are prepared for them or not, power interruptions can cost your business more than you think. Not all power disruption costs are evident right away, and better cost-awareness helps justify preventive measures. So, let’s get into some power-disruption sources, cost impacts, and a way to help avoid them.   Understanding diverse sources of power […]
