US Army now has a $7bn renewables procurement programme. “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineering Support Center in Huntsville, Ala., has selected 22 solar technology contractors to receive Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOCs) under the solar portion of its $7 billion program to create renewable energy generation capabilities at Department of Defense (DOD) installations. The awards do not cover specific projects but grant the named contractors the right to bid on solar projects as they arise.”
