The Air Force is doing market research on energy resilience as part of a larger effort through 2030 to also optimize demand and assure supply, a plan that includes microgrids.
Its Office of Energy Assurance (OEA) issued an open request for information (RFI) last week that seeks industry guidance in collecting technical and financial data, as well as examples of innovative projects. The Air Force intends to use the information to eventually develop projects.
The military branch hopes to eliminate 20 percent of the single points of energy failure within its critical infrastructure by 2025, a goal it set out in 2017-2030 energy plan.
