Engagement Opportunities

Partnerships are key to OEA’s project research and development strategy, enabling the office to leverage unique resources and capabilities to achieve energy resilient installations that ensure mission success.

Partnerships and solutions may involve using distributed generation, utility-scale generation (>10MW), microgrid and emerging technologies to help with:

  • Improving energy resiliency by identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities, prioritizing resources, and advancing physical and cyber security solutions
  • Optimizing energy demand through increased efficiency, reduced dependence on commercial energy supplies and demand and balancing critical load
  • Assuring energy supply by integrating innovative, diverse assets—including, but not limited to, alternative generation methods, smart controls, increased cyber security, infrastructure upgrades and storage—and third-party investment mechanisms.  

These partnerships not only help power the Air Force mission, but could also provide:

  • Grid stability
  • Local economy stimulation
  • Increased presence and recognition
  • Safe and secure energy assets
