      Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables
      Energy officers at military bases are working to turn their facilities into "island microgrids"--entities that can generate and store their own electricity, independent of the surrounding commercial grid. … in the event of a blackout, it could continue to function on electricity generated on-site--largely from renewable sources. These include utility-scale solar arrays, backed up with advance-battery solar-power storage units and diesel generators … Energy experts say that the military's approach could also offer a new model for towns and cities, protecting them from regional-grid blackouts--and boosting local renewable-energy production.
