Plug into NREL's Resilient CUBE

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Designed for mobility and flexibility, NREL's Consolidated Utility Base Energy (CUBE) is a hybrid power generation system that converts energy from different sources - solar panels, batteries, diesel generators, and host grid power - into tactical electricity, improving the efficiency and reliability of power for the military's forward operating bases. By reducing dependence on diesel generators, the CUBE also helps reduce the number of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines shipping fuel across dangerous territory.
