The provision of secure, reliable, and resilient energy and water is critical to ensuring mission execution at our military installations. Over the last 8 years, the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) – DoD's environmental technology demonstration and validation program – has deployed innovative technologies designed to improve energy security, increase backup power reliability, and support critical loads during extended electrical grid outages. One of the most promising technologies in this sector is microgrids. These systems can reduce operating costs behind the meter and generate revenue by providing services to utilities and/or participating in energy markets.
