The Air Force released a Request for Information (RFI), solicitation number W912DY-18-T-PPA1, to conduct market research and determine the feasibility of implementing various energy generation technologies to improve resilience at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL) in New Jersey.
With this RFI, the Air Force seeks input from industry to further identify innovative solutions for JB MDL that ensure energy resilience and help power the mission. Responses to the RFI are due by June 1, 2018. Full RFI details may be found on the Federal Business Opportunity website here.
This RFI is part of a larger effort to bolster JB MDL’s overall energy assurance plan by ensuring reliable, resilient power is available when and where it’s needed.
Previously, the Air Force issued an RFI in January 2018 for an Enhanced Use Lease for a utility-scale natural gas power plant at JB MDL to enhance the regional grid and provide direct resilience to the installation via cash payments and/or in-kind consideration projects.
Instead of a utility-facing asset, this RFI seeks to gain understanding of the feasibility of a primary power source for JB MDL via an offtake agreement. The intent is for these two efforts to work in tandem to advance the installation’s energy resilience and further drive mission success.
