Representatives for Ameresco, the Obama Administration and Fort Detrick take part in a ribbon cutting.

Attendees at the Fort Detrick renewable energy project ribbon cutting ceremony included (left to right) Ms. Christine Harada, Federal Chief Sustainability Officer, White House Council on Environmental Quality; Mr. George Atwood, Deputy Commander, Defense Logistics Agency; the Honorable Katherin Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy & Environment; Colonel Robert O’Brien IV, Commander, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick; Maryland Senator Ben Cardin, and Ms. Nicole Bulgarino, Executive Vice President, Ameresco Federal Solutions.


The U.S. Army partners with Ameresco to assure access to reliable energy supplies and the ability to protect and deliver sufficient energy to meet mission-essential requirements. We have implemented energy projects at the Adelphi Laboratory Center, Forts Detrick and Hamilton. Ameresco is also a qualified Army Renewable Energy Multiple Award Task Order Contracting (MATOC) contract holder for biomass, solar and wind.

Energy security is crucial. Our expertise includes the installation of on-site energy generation with microgrid-ready configurations and the implementation of Power Purchase Agreements and Energy Savings Performance Contracts through the Army Office of Energy Initiatives and the Army Corps of Engineers Huntsville ESPC program.

Ameresco’s approach to project development in partnership with the United States Army is built upon these Army priorities:

Optimize Energy Use

Assure Energy Access

Build Resiliency

Drive Innovation

Ameresco has been awarded an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) by the Army National Guard to improve energy efficiency at its national headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. This project is projected to reduce energy use at the headquarters by 20% through improvements to lighting and cooling as well as IT system efficiencies.
