Retrofitting Existing Solar with Emerging Technologies (RESET) focuses on developing a repeatable project structure for retrofitting existing Department of Defense (DoD) renewable energy assets with resilience technologies. RESET will assess the cybersecurity, legal, engineering, and financial feasibility of retrofitting existing solar photovoltaic (PV) generation at a military installation with resilience capabilities. RESET will identify lessons learned applicable across the DoD enterprise.
RESET will demonstrate an approach for analyzing energy resilience retrofit opportunities. The RESET project will provide targeted technical assistance to a military installation to advance an investment-grade energy resilience project proposal. The technical assistance proposed for RESET is intentionally structured as a foundation for energy resilience project implementation. The project will focus analysis and solution development on Edwards AFB use-case, with the objective to generalize the findings from this feasibility study.
