Army Issues New Round of $7B Renewable Energy Program Awards; Robert Ruch Comments

PowerPlantThe U.S. Army added 21 companies in January and February to the branch’s $7 billion program covering work to develop and produce renewable energy for the Army and Defense Department.

Seventy-nine contractors now hold positions on the 30-year program and awardees will compete for task orders to provide renewable energy by owning, operating and maintaining the energy assets, the Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday.

Thirty-eight companies are competing for work in the program’s solar technology area, 20 in wind, 15 in biomass and six in geothermal.

The new round of selections includes 15 for solar, three for wind and two for biomass.

“We are adding these additional companies to those already in the technology pools to ensure we have enough pre-qualified companies ready to submit proposals on task orders as they come up,” said Col. Robert Ruch, commander of the Corps’ Huntsville Center.

“Huntsville Center is doing everything we can to ensure task orders for future projects will be awarded as quickly as possible.”
