Go Electric, a provider of energy resiliency and microgrid solutions, today announced it has been 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 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. The system will seamlessly 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 AutoLYNC 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.
“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.”
