Beginning in 2011 the U.S. Army’s Rapid Equipping Force (REF) initiated its Energy to the Tactical Edge effort, known as E2E, to mitigate the inherent risks associated with living on small combat outposts and forward operating bases. E2E focused on reducing troops’ reliance on fuel resupply operations and decreasing the Soldier load burden.
In 2010, the USMC established ExFOB to implement the Marine Corps’ goal to go ashore anywhere in the world carrying only mobility fuel by 2025. ExFOB takes on the challenges of reducing fuel consumption, generating more power from renewable sources, lightening the load for Marines, and having more energy efficient installations and facilities.
Ocean Vodka, a family-owned organic farm and distillery based on the island of Maui, sought to power their production process entirely from renewable sources. Ocean Vodka continually aims to employ the most sustainable and efficient production methods available, and recently introduced ZeroBase’s solar microgrid to their facilities to utilize the enormous potential of Maui’s tropical climate.
