Second part of Annie Snider's excellent piece on Energy Security is here. Annie continues the discussion of energy security haves and have nots. Lots more have nots than haves, but, once again, the Devil Dogs of the USMC have it about right. If the utility controls a renewable source inside the gates, guns and guards, it is NOT energy security. If the commander owns the switch, it is energy security. Class dismissed.
I will have a report out soonest on the Army's Net Zero Installation Conference and the Navy/USMC (or so it seemed) Operational Energy symposium.
I also had an opportunity to sit in on a vendor meeting with the Army's Energy Initiative Task Force. TF members were well informed, insightful and helpful. If you (industry) intend to engage with the Army on large, renewable energy projects, get signed up now. Contact them here to set up a one hour session. They will brief you on the program, listen to your pitch and provide guidance on next steps. Worth the effort. I sure hope someone is doing this for energy efficiency projects!!! Dan Nolan
