      DoD Examines 200K Plug-In Electric Vehicles With Grid Storage
      The DOD is at the genesis of large-scale integration of plug-in electric vehicles into its non-tactical ground fleet. Medium duty trucks, which are currently the largest fuel consumer in the DOD non-tactical fleet, are a top target for this integration. On June 16 the DOD released a request for information to engage stakeholders in a to achieve "total cost of ownership parity" -- in other words, a budget-neutral program.

      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.
