Go Electric awarded mobile military microgrid contract

Go Electric has announced being awarded a $297,769 contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Energy Research Lab (CERL) to develop a portable, modular, self-forming microgrid solution for use in harsh mobile applications.

The Indiana-based provider of energy resiliency and microgrid solutions made the announcement on Tuesday.

The system will provide supply-side energy management by integrating multiple energy sources – including engine-driven generators, renewable energy assets and host-nation/shore power with battery energy storage into a self-forming microgrid.à‚  It will integrate, manage and optimize all 50 or 60 Hz AC sources such as commercial and military generators to include AMMPS/DSC synchronizing generators and non-synchronizing TQG generators.

This contract is the fourth deployment of Go Electric’s patented AutoLYNCà‚® microgrid control technology for military microgrid projects. Contracts have also been awarded to Go Electric for microgrid installations at SPIDERS/Camp Smith, Hawaii; Tooele Army Depot, Utah; and Ft. Custer, Michigan. à‚ 

“We are leveraging our experience from successful deployments at stationary microgrid projects into a portable, ruggedized solution,” said Lisa Laughner, CEO of Go Electric. “This solution is poised to support not only military facilities world-wide, but will also serve as an energy resiliency solution for disaster relief.”

The Construction Engineering Research Laboratory develops and infuses innovative technologies to provide excellent facilities and realistic training lands for the US Department of Defense (DOD). Products and services from CERL research enhance the Army’s ability to design, build, operate and maintain its installations and contingency bases and to ensure environmental quality at the lowest life-cycle cost.à‚
