The concept of a microgrid is quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in energy distribution, offering resilience and independence that can’t be achieved relying on the traditional power grid. Installations such as military bases, hospitals, universities and rural communities are already experiencing the benefits of switching to this method of power supply, and it seems the number of organizations adopting microgrid capabilities is growing steadily. With the added benefits of infrastructure resilience and renewable energy emphases, microgrids seem like a perfect fit for the future of energy distribution.

After three years of planning and construction, a ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on Aug 29 that marked the DoD’s first wind-powered microgrid, signifying the system’s readiness to support the 24/7 Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance mission of the 102nd Intelligence Wing.
The Otis Microgrid, a DoD-funded research project, provides for an energy capability almost exclusively based on renewable energy while ensuring a high-level of grid security. In addition to providing energy resiliency for the wing’s ISR mission, it increases value to the Air Force and National Guard as well as state and Federal government through revenue and research opportunities for the energy industry.
The Cape Cod unit performs intelligence processing, exploitation and dissemination by analysing and interpreting information from manned and unmanned reconnaissance aircraft as well as signals within the cyberspace domain; transforming this material into decision quality intelligence. This information is distributed rapidly across the globe for use in the planning and execution of operations
