Greg Martin is the Engineering Group Manager for a team of 12 at the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. He has been at NREL working in microgrids, hydrogen systems, and grid technology integration since 2008. Greg was part of a small team that developed and built the “CUBE” – Consolidated Utility Base Energy – prototype hybrid energy system. He also had a foundational role in the design and specification for the ESIF and continues work to develop and operate the facility. He received his Master of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado – Boulder in 2007 after working for Boeing on commercial airplanes for 3 years.

This webinar presents an overview of the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) Consolidated Utility Base Energy (CUBE), a mobile and flexible hybrid power generation system that converts energy from different sources – solar panels, batteries, generators, and host grid power – into tactical electricity, improving the efficiency and reliability of power for the military’s forward operating bases. Validation tests have shown that the technology can achieve up to 30% savings in fuel use, thereby helping to reduce the number of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who are required to transport fuel across dangerous territory.
