About Marine Corps Energy Resilience:

The ability to sustainably generate, distribute and effectively manage energy resources is vital to training, operational planning and warfighting and requires an innovative and multi-faceted approach to decrease energy vulnerabilities and adapt to new environmental challenges. MCICOM strives to maximize readiness and ensure our Marines are equipped to train and fight in any climate. Additionally, the Marine Corps is committed to investments in innovative solutions to energy resilience that minimize the magnifying negative climate impacts. Enhancing lethality, resilience, capacity and capabilities required to support our installations, the warfighter and the mission will remain our top priority today and well into the future.

 

Current Initiatives

2022 – Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Mid-Atlantic (NAVFAC MIDLANT) awarded Duke Energy Progress a contract for the design and construction of the Camp Johnson microgrid, and implementation of energy conservation measures at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The work to be performed includes the implementation of a microgrid that provides power to support the full load of Camp Johnson, and integration into the Camp Lejeune high voltage supervisory controls, data acquisition system and implementation of cost-effective energy conservation measures.

2022 – Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Albany was declared the first “Net Zero” base in the Marine Corps. Net Zero is defined as the production of as much electricity from renewable “green” energy sources as it consumes from its utility provider. This decade-long effort involved MCLB Albany partnering with private industry.

2022 – MCLB Albany awarded a project through a GSA Area-wide contract to the local electric utility, Georgia Power, for the installation of electric vehicle chargers in support of an all-electric fleet of vehicles. The effort consists of the 21 charge points at nine locations. MCLB Albany took advantage of the "Make Ready" program with Georgia Power to construct the utility infrastructure between the existing electric grid to the new chargers.
