Microgrid KnowledgeNavy Chooses Ameresco for $58M Resilience and Microgrid Project at Maine Shipyard

The US Navy has awarded Ameresco a task order for a $58 million energy resilience project, which includes a microgrid, at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), one of four remaining naval shipyards in the US.

The project expands on a long-term partnership between Ameresco and the the Kittery, Maine facility, extending back to Ameresco’s installation of a microgrid controller at the facility in 2015.

Under the agreement announced Wednesday, Ameresco will provide on-site generation, battery storage, and microgrid controls via an energy savings performance contract, which spares the Navy from making an upfront investment.
