National Defense Summary One of the Army’s modernization goals is to install a microgrid on each of its installations by 2035. Cummins, a longtime supplier of generators to the U.S. military, recently opened a microgrid testing laboratory that could help the Army reach its power goal. A microgrid is an energy system “made up of sources, loads, connections and controls” connected together, said Cummins lab manager Corey Bergendahl. Pulling energy from a variety of sources, a microgrid can function as part of the main power grid and maintain power if a grid goes down or can provide power to facilities or communities that are not connected to the main grid. ...

Politico Summary One of the most interesting experiments at the intersection of tech and energy is unfolding not in Silicon Valley but inside the Pentagon. The Army wants to build a “microgrid” at every base around the world by 2035. The Army has built a floating island of solar panels in a North Carolina lake that makes a bit over a megawatt of electricity; a 10 megawatt array in Alabama ;and a 30 megawatt one in Georgia . All told, the Army has installed over 500 megawatts worth of renewable capacity in recent years. Fort Hunter Liggett, about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, is currently building a microgrid that ...

Microgrid Media Summary West Musgrave’s large $1.7 billion nickel and copper project is a significant renewable microgrid on earth. Oz, a new mining group, announced this project earlier this month, after which Australia approved it last week. Oz Minerals is located near the borders of South Australia and the Northern Territory. Although it aims at 100%, it will start by supplying over 80% of its electrical energy from its proposed microgrid. ‘Investment approval for West Musgrave unlocks one of the largest undeveloped nickel projects in the world and, with expected lowest quartile costs, it is set to generate ~ $9.8 billion undiscounted cash flow over ...

Energy Voice Summary Recent Rystad research shows the UK government is expected to spend more than $470 million on geothermal heating by the decade’s end. The UK has traditionally ignored geothermal as a handful of European nations took advantage of the energy source for heating with 20 megawatt thermal (MWt) of geothermal heating capacity today, however, that is expected to exceed 100 MWt in 2030. The uptake in geothermal heating is a trend across Europe as countries aim to find affordable alternatives to gas-fired heating. Geothermal usage is set to increase by 58% growing from today’s 3.9 gigawatt thermal (GWt) to over 6.2 GWt – this increase in development ...
