WASHINGTON - The U.S. Army has announced the locations identified to be pilot net zero energy installations. As part of the Army’s overall effort to conserve resources, a net zero energy installation produces as much energy on-site as it uses over the course of a year.

The announcement initiates the analysis and planning process for the Army’s Net Zero Installation Strategy. Specifics for projects and initiatives will be determined through a programmatic environmental analysis which will include public engagement and stakeholder outreach.

The Army’s pilot net zero energy installations are:

• Fort Detrick, Md.;

• Fort Hunter Liggett, Calif.;

• Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands;

• Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, Calif.;

• Sierra Army Depot, Calif.; and

• West Point, N.Y.

In addition, the Oregon Army National Guard volunteered to pilot a Net Zero Energy Initiative, which includes all of its installations across the state. This strategy will be included in the environmental analysis.

As part of the pilot, the installations will participate in a kick-off meeting in June to receive training and showcase their proposed strategies to achieve net zero. Each installation will participate in monthly conference calls and share experiences and lessons learned in newsletters and military and industry conferences. These installations will also participate in analysis and planning to inform future decisions throughout the Army’s initiative.
