      Feds could help Johnson Controls' bid to buy A123

      "A123 has multiple contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense ... these contracts involve military vehicles, unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles, power grids, unmanned ground and portable power systems, high-energy lasers, and advanced armor," U.S. Representative Huizenga said in a release Thursday.  “Should any adverse foreign agent working through Wanxiang gain access to these contracts, such access would be extremely detrimental to U.S. military operations."

      A123: U.S. Army's $7B Renewables Plan and the Storage Opportunity

      The Defense Department continues to revamp its energy strategy with a goal of getting 25% from renewable sources by 2025. This should create a demand for energy storage and an opportunity for lithium ion batteries and energy storage, particularly now that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a Multiple-Award Task Order (MATOC) Request for Proposal (RFP) for “$7 billion in total contract capacity to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy through power purchase agreements.”

      GE's new battery - more details

      [This article provides more details than the original July 10 news.]

      The batteries could also be used to store power from wind turbines and solar panels to even out fluctuations in these power sources. GE also says they could be used in microgrids, small grids that are often the size of a village or military base and are designed to operate independently of the larger electrical grid while still getting grid-quality electricity.

      Army's steps toward a battlefield Global Energy Grid includes storage

      In addition to unifying existing programs/technologies, the GEG would leverage energy storage from conventional and alternative power sources, alternative fuels and the onboard power storage of electric hybrid vehicles -- ground, ship or aircraft. The efforts would support forward operating bases, tactical operations centers and possibly dismounted units.

      Conference: Defense Renewable Energy & Military Microgrids Summit - Arlington, VA May 30-June 1

      The DoD's goal of deploying 3GW of renewable energy by 2025 is one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history. From the Air Force's recently announced project to install over $1B of distributed solar on bases and installations across the country, to the Army's new Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF) program that plans to issue PPAs in 2012 for 2GW of power, the services are planning installations ranging from utility-scale to rooftop solar for base housing.
