Lockheed Martin selected to build U.S. military’s first long-duration energy storage system

Lockheed Martin has been selected to build the U.S. military’s first long-duration energy storage system.

The defense contractor’s redox flow battery technology will be installed at For Carson, Colorado for the Army.

This is Lockheed’s first customer-sited production system and is intended as a demonstration unit under the management of the Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL).

The system will be tested against protocols that simulate microgrid and renewable integration to ensure critical missions can continue in the event of a long-term power outage.
