Army Plans to Award $7B in Renewable Energy IDIQs

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers expects to award $7 billion in shared energy capacity contracts to the private sector for renewable energy.

The Army’s Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Ala. said in a draft request for proposals it will purchase power from private sector firms and award task orders under multiple indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts.

The Army aims to procure locally generated and renewable alternative energy through power purchase agreements.

Contracts spanning up to 30 years will likely be handed down in four renewable technology areas, including wind, solar, geothermal and biomass.

Contract awardees will provide the Army with power generated from energy plants the firms will finance, design, build and operate.

Several contracting firms recently purchased business assets in Huntsville, Ala. to support government customers, including LMI and Intelligent Decisions.
