Abstract:

The REF procured, deployed and assessed hybrid alternative and renewable energy systems and energy efficient shelter systems as part of the Energy to the Edge E2E program and expanded the program to support Soldiers in Africa and South America and demonstrate various configurations at test sites in the US. Hybrid power systems were successfully operated in a wide variety of locations supporting a range of capabilities including surveillance, aerostats, aircraft landing, weather systems, entry control points, and tactical operations centers. Energy efficient shelters and systems provided improved living conditions for the Soldiers. Both Heavy and Lite Camp basing configurations provided warfighters with the comforts of garrison living in a tactical environment. REF operational energy efforts have demonstrated the effectiveness of hybrid power and energy efficient shelters. Feedback from Soldiers and Operational Energy Advisors has helped inform the defense community of the suitability and value of these hybrid power systems and alternative basing configurations.
