World : Lockheed Martin Provides Energy Resiliency Solutions To Support U.S. Army Operations

Lockheed Martin is providing energy storage capabilities to support the U.S. Army’s efforts to enhance its base resiliency, preserving power in the event of natural disasters, cyber-attacks or shutdowns.

Lockheed Martin has introduced the most energy dense storage system on the market to support resiliency efforts. The latest example is Lockheed Martin’s collaborative effort with infrastructure firm AECOM to deliver a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) at the U.S. Army’s Fort Carson base in Colorado. This BESS uses Lockheed Martin’s GridStar® Lithium energy storage system and is currently the U.S. Department of Defense’s largest peak-shaving battery system.

“The energy challenge is an engineering challenge, and that’s what we’ve been perfecting for more than 100 years,” said Frank Armijo, vice president, Lockheed Martin Energy. “We have a unique range of energy storage solutions, and every system we offer is tailored to our customers’ mission needs. We’re proud to support them as they develop strategies for greater levels of security and resiliency.”
