It is projected that over the next decade $3.4 trillion dollars will be spent by national governments and private entities investing in renewable
and alternative energy sources . The goal of these investments is primarily to reduce the production and consumption of fossil fuels that have
dominated historical energy efforts. Governments and militaries are especially interested in the development of these alternative energy sources
as they can provide significant cost, logistic, and environmental benefits over traditional fuel sources.
One of the major alternative energy sources currently receiving large investment and commercial interest is that of fuel cell technology. Thanks to the opportunities and future prospects of fuel cell technology it has attracted special attention from the U.S. military. Partnering with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), Black&Rossi led a project to thoroughly research and document the current state of fuel cell technology as well as development of a concept of operations which describes how fuel cell technology could be integrated and supported within the U.S. armed forces.
Fuel cell energy generation offers some significant benefits over more traditional energy sources and continues to mature and gain broader market adoption. The research and concept of operations developed as part of this project filled an existing gap in understanding and strategy that can now be leveraged to fully examine what the integration and life cycle support of fuel cell technology in military operations would look like.
