The Army plans to invest $800 million in performance-based contracts to increase the amount of energy it saves, Federal News Radio reports.
Richard Kidd, deputy assistant secretary for energy and sustainability, said the Army will work with contractors to build and operate energy-efficient equipment and designs, according to Federal News Radio.
This Army project supports a December 2 presidential memorandum which calls for more energy saving projects.
The memo directs $2 billion toward the projects over the next two years.
The Army is working with the Energy Department and Defense Logistics Agency to expedite energy contract awards, according to Federal News Radio.
The planned $800 million project brings the Army’s total investment for performance-based contracts to $2.5 billion.
