Army Adds New Generation Power to $7B Energy Program’s Geothermal Portion

PowerPlantChicago-based renewable energy developer New Generation Power will compete for task orders to carry out geothermal energy projects at Defense Department installations under a potential 30-year, $7 billion program.

New Generation Power joins a pool of five other contractors that were selected in May after further evaluation by the government, the Corps said Tuesday.

The Corps said the September 2012 request for proposals allowed for immediate awards and future, additional awards to businesses after evaluations by the government.

“Including more potential contractors and small business allows us to further expand competition among qualified bidders and encourages the best value for renewable energy projects, ” said Army Col. Robert Ruch, commander of the branch’s Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Awardees for the Renewable and Alternative Energy for Department of Defense Installations program’s wind and solar portions have been selected, with the final round of awards for biomass technologies set to be announced later this year.

The Corps will issue a competitive RFP for each task order to selected companies for renewable energy projects and the orders will specify the type and amount of energy an Army installation or other federal user requires.
