Life Sciences

Responsible for protecting and improving human health, the Life Sciences industry must be prepared for anything — from large-scale research and manufacturing efforts to rapid production pivots. But more than a quarter of emissions stem from the U.S. health care system, and organizations are looking to increase reliability and resilience while reducing greenhouse gas emissions to realize a more sustainable future.1

The Opportunity

Cutting-edge technology puts energy reliability and resilience within reach, which is critical in this energy intensive and sensitive industry where uninterrupted service is required 24/7. Forced into the spotlight by COVID-19, life sciences organizations are making meaningful climate commitments and stabilizing long-term energy costs while achieving resilient, zero-carbon energy.

The Challenge

Reliable power is essential to human health, but the industry faces volatile electricity prices and an unpredictable energy supply. Organizations must look for new ways to lock in long-term energy resilience, price stability, and greenhouse gas reductions, without waiting for the grid to catch up.

The life sciences energy transformation is important in considering the following:

Airports of the Future: Decarbonizing the U.S.’ Most Critical Infrastructure

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.
