Energy Storage for DOD & IC Energy Security



Try not to get greedy, but it looks like legendary but MIA DOD Energy blogger Dan Nolan has just emerged and offered up a tapas-sized post. Let's see how he does:

One of the nation’s mission critical facilities is going green or at least getting more energy secure. DOD has deployed 1.6MW of solid oxide fuel cells in support of undisclosed NSA facilities at Fort Meade, MD. The system, supplied by Bloom Energy and installed by ARGO Systems, a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), was announced yesterday. You can read the press release here.

In watching fuel cell development over the past decade, I was always told they were 5 years away, and had been for the last 15! Apparently, someone was able to figure out the value of energy security that is provided by a sustainable, reliable, and secure power generation system. I guess if you are running the servers that are processing EVERYTHING (according to Glenn Greenwald) maintaining energy security is important. As much battering as the good folks at the NSA have been taking, let me be the first to say, “Way to Go, Green!” - Dan Nolan

Go green is definitely a need, and I believe it is better to save energy if we can for our future use and also helping environment.

I saw people using fuel cells a few years ago in a remote hotel in portugal. They had an unreliable power source so used fuel cells to provide backup. I was surprised how efficient they were! Fortunately they're not yet particularly necessary in the UK with the likes of npower looking after us. Might be a good way to store solar/wind energy that you harvest from your house though?
