The Defense Department aims to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy using geothermal, wind, biomass and solar technologies by 2025, Siemens said Wednesday.
The Siemens team was the only group to be selected for all four energy technologies under the Renewable and Alternative Energy for Department of Defense Installations program.
Judy Marks, Siemens Government Technologies president and CEO, said the alliance will work to help the Army build a resilient infrastructure and improve sustainability.
Greg Frank, general manager of Bechtel’s U.S. defense and security business, said the company brings more than three decades of renewable energy experience to the program.
DoD will issue task orders to the Siemens team and acquire energy over up to 30 years through power purchase agreements.
Contractors participating in the program will be responsible for designing, financing, building, operating and maintaining the energy generation systems.
