Defense Techconnect – US Navy Awards Ameresco $58M, Invests in Infrastructure Redundancy for Mission Critical Loads
The US Navy has awarded Ameresco a task order for a $58 million energy resilience project at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY). Ameresco will build upon existing infrastructure to provide a high level of redundancy for mission-critical loads.
Ameresco will provide on-site generation, battery storage, and microgrid controls via an energy savings performance contract. The microgrid and other energy improvements are expected to save the Navy $175 million over the 22-year performance term and improve the facility’s energy security.
