Siemens Partners with AECOM and Bechtel for the U.S. Army’s $7-Billion Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production Program
In April 2012, the White House announced that the Defense Department was making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to deploy 3 gigawatts of renewable energy — including solar, wind, biomass or geothermal — on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025.
Siemens Government Technologies, Inc., the prime contractor, along with partners AECOM and Bechtel have been awarded four contracts to help the U.S. Army meet its goal of 1 gigawatt of that total — enough energy to power 250,000 homes.
Learn more about how these contracts are placing the Army one step closer to meeting congressional energy mandates of 25 percent production and consumption of energy from renewable sources by 2025.
