US DOD Stationary Base, Forward Operating Base, and Tactical Mobile Systems: Market Analysis and Forecasts.
The US Department of Defense (DOD) is the single largest consumer of petroleum in the world. Moreover, US military operations (as a single entity) represent the largest consumer of all forms of energy globally. The genesis of the DOD's interest in improving energy security through microgrid technology stems from its heavy reliance upon all forms of fossil fuels, often imported from regions of the world hostile to US interests.
The DOD spends $4 billion on energy across its 523 installations that feature 280,000 buildings. Shifting from a reliance on backup diesel generators to large-scale microgrids could save the agency between $8 billion and $20 billion over the next 20 years. While the DOD is not the only military agency exploring microgrids as a platform to increase physical security and cybersecurity, its related efforts are the most advanced. Other nations rumored to be examining the potential for remote off-grid microgrids and nanogrids include the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Russia, and China. Given the sensitive nature of military operations, little data is available on these non-DOD microgrid projects.
This Navigant Research report analyzes the market for military microgrids deployed by the US DOD in three key segments: stationary bases, forward operating bases (FOBs), and tactical mobile systems. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including drivers, challenges, and business models, associated with military microgrids. Market forecasts for US DOD capacity and implementation spending, broken out by segment and scenario (conservative, base, and aggressive), extend through 2026. The report also examines programs and case studies related to military microgrids, as well as the competitive landscape.
