Electric vehicles recruited for military base grid security

Can electric vehicles help protect a military base from power disruptions? Well, maybe not entirely, but they could help make a base microgrid secure.

That proposition will be tested at Fort Carson, Colo., one of three military installations where a joint project of the departments of Defense and Energy – called SPIDERS, for Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security – is unfolding.

The Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $7 milllion contract for work on the Fort Carson project, and the Southwest Research Institute, in San Antonio, is in on the EV component.
