Integrating Military Water Supply into Mission-Critical Planning
Publish date:
The Department of Defense (DoD) has garnered considerable attention for its initiative to deploy more renewable energy at military facilities worldwide. Green energy goals have pushed facilities to implement distributed energy resources (DER) through integrated microgrids and other solutions to boost system resilience and energy security – all in the name of keeping missions on, even if local grid power is compromised. The benefits are easy enough to understand, but how could personnel perform their missions without an equally critical commodity, water?
