Military Micro Grid Applications
Advanced electronic equipment creates a large demand for energy in many military applications.
Utilizing and integrating renewable energy for all branches of the military would substantially reduce the need for diesel fuel. Whether in small portable devices or larger megawatt quantities, electricity storage plays a large role in stable, reliable, portable power. And with operations at outposts or in hostile environments, the savings would not only be for the cost of fuel, but also potentially for the lives required to get the fuel to where it is needed.
Many military battery applications must be highly transportable. Therefore, small size and light in weight are important factors. Lithium-ion battery storage, with its high energy density (energy per weight and mass), is ideal for the needs of this market. Applications from micro grid energy storage to deployed portable power devices carried by the combat soldier are viable possibilities for Beckett Energy Systems.
