Boeing, Siemens form alliance for DOD energy modernization

Washington, D.C., August 8, 2011 — Boeing and Siemens announced a strategic alliance for the joint development and marketing of smart grid technologies to improve energy access and security for the U.S. Department of Defense, the largest energy consumer in the federal government.

The collaboration centers on providing U.S. military installations with secure microgrid management solutions that lower operational costs and increase energy efficiency.

The alliance draws on Boeing's expertise in providing the DOD with complex systems and technologies, and Siemens' energy management capabilities.

The alliance's microgrid management solution will be designed to:

* Implement economical energy-efficiency tools that allow for analysis, control and automation of energy processes

* Use smart energy controls to provide real-time data to manage energy use

* Integrate renewable energy sources and storage.

The Siemens and Boeing alliance brings together the capabilities required of a DOD energy modernization provider, including end-to-end engineering and construction; network and smart grid integration; cybersecurity; energy efficiency; energy management and storage; next-generation alternative energy integration; climate monitoring; and service, training and maintenance.
