Power Analytics Corporation has been selected to help the United States military reduce its energy consumption and improve the security of its electrical supply. The funding comes through the prestigious Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), which was established in 1995 to address critical military environmental requirements. This highly competitive program identifies technologies that are both innovative and cost-effective, and funds their demonstration in operational settings at Department of Defense facilities to show their real impact in improving performance, improving security, and reducing costs.
Under the auspices of ESTCP, Power Analytics will use its software to create and operate a secure cluster of microgrids at three separate San Diego area naval bases. Although single microgrids have proven their value in both commercial and military settings, this will be the first centrally managed cluster of microgrids in a cyber-secure military environment.
