Supplying renewable power to the U.S. military is the biggest opportunity for renewable energy finance and development in 2013—the Army is seeking over 1 GW of power in 2013, while 1 GW Air Force and Navy programs are coming fast behind. These new programs will involve tens of billions of dollars in private investment and finance, but success in this arena will demand going far beyond bidding on project announcements. In many ways the real work begins in the contracting process. Projects must comply with complex federal acquisition regulations and individual service requirements, while remaining attractive to financiers and profitable for developers. Only the developers that gain a thorough understanding of each Service’s renewable energy needs, how their procurement programs will work and can structure projects that meet the needs of financiers will succeed in this growing market.
Infocast designed this event to bring together military decision-makers with renewable energy developers and leading financiers to facilitate the formation of this new market. Infocast proudly presents the 3rd Defense Renewable Energy and Military Microgrids, which will explore how viable and financeable projects can be developed to the profit of all. They will provide the latest on the emerging guidelines and processes for a new market that melds the complexity of federal acquisitions with the risk allocation methods of project finance, as well as practical experience gained on pioneering projects.
