The Department of Defense (DoD) was seeking demonstrations of innovative technologies and methodologies to improve energy security on military installations. Demonstrations must have provided valid assessments of cost, technical performance and acceptability to the DoD facility management community. Demonstrations should have included technology transfer activities that have a feasible path to commercialization of products DoD facilities managers would adopt and implement to support the military mission on DoD facilities. The proposed solution must have enabled buildings and infrastructure to operate with public utilities and should have demonstrated the ability to “island” from the electric grid for at least 120 consecutive hours with a minimum of 1MW of power continuously available and a minimum of 2MW peak demand for 4 consecutive hours.
Desired Characteristics of Proposed Demonstrations
