Working with the EITF
Both the EITF and private industry are integral to the Army’s commitment to addressing rising security challenges and escalating costs associated with its vast energy consumption. The Army understands that enhancing energy security is operationally necessary, financially prudent and mission critical. And we invite you to work with us.
At the EITF, we understand that private investors have a choice. Naturally, they gravitate toward projects where returns are highest and transaction costs are lowest. This is why we are committed to creating an environment where private industry can confidently engage with the Army. The Army’s 15 million acres of land and its huge and unmet need for additional sources of renewable energy stand as unique business opportunities. Our goal is for private industry and business to view these outstanding opportunities as worthy of investors’ time, talents and capital.
To further explore these opportunities, we invite you to get to know the EITF, its professional leadership and its staff. From top to bottom, we’re committed to assisting private business and industries to provide renewable energy.
The EITF actively works with installations to screen and provide feedback on large-scale renewable energy projects that are based on an enterprise-wide approach. The EITF's dedicated technical, business and acquisition expertise helps speed overall project development timelines to ensure the highest and best value to the Army.
Submit your installation’s large-scale renewable energy project idea:
1. Complete the Installation Questionnaire form
3. EITF Planning will acknowledge receipt of your e-mail
Note: Submitted ideas will be reviewed and additional information will be requested, if needed.
The EITF serves as the central management office for partnering with Army installations to implement cost-effective, large-scale renewable energy projects, leveraging private sector financing. The Task Force focuses on renewable and alternative energy production projects that are 10 megawatts or greater, and located on Army installations in the United States.
Reminder: The EITF is only responsible for large-scale renewable energy projects 10 megawatts or greater. It has no role in the decision making process relating to procurement actions. The Task Force collaborates with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Defense Logistics Agency and other organizations on these activities.
