Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Infocast proudly presents the 4th Defense Renewable Energy Summit, scheduled for May 19-21, 2014 at the Washington Marriot Wardman Park, Arlington, VA with Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy & Environment, as Keynote Speaker.
The Army’s MATOC (Multiple Award Task Order Contract) program to source 1 GW of renewable energy, which is expected to exceed $7B of public-private project investment through 2014, is in full swing. Projects ranging from rooftop solar to utility-scale projects are being announced both as part of the MATOC and as standalone developments run through individual bases and very soon, qualified bidders will begin competing for and negotiating contracts. Programs and initiatives from other services are poised to begin, as both the Air Force and Navy are ramping up similar 1 GW MATOC programs. These new programs will require billions of dollars in private investment and finance—making providing energy to the military the fastest growing area in the green energy field.
Success in the area will depend not only on successfully bidding on project announcements—in many ways the real work begins in the contracting process, where projects must be structured to not only comply with complex federal acquisition regulations, but also remain attractive to financiers and profitable for developers. Only the organizations that gain a thorough understanding of the Department of Defense’s renewable energy needs and how these programs work will succeed in this growing market.
The event will include a full-day, Pre-Summit workshop on May 19, 2014, Structuring Renewable Energy Deals in a DoD Contracting Environment, which is a must-attend for those wanting to learn how to structure financeable deals using the rules, regulations and contracting methods that are being used in acquiring renewable energy by the DoD.
