US Army picks wind companies for $6 billion investment

UNITED STATES: The US Army has picked 17 wind companies that will be eligible to compete for a piece of its planned $7 billion in renewable energy purchases.

The army selected the companies out of 45 submissions received, identifying them in the Pentagon's daily digest of major contracts awards posted on Monday.

The companies, which include leading wind producerssuch as Iberdrola, Enel Green Power, EDF Renewable Energy and First Wind, are now pre-qualified to compete on individual wind project development opportunities as the military issues them.

The army has a goal of procuring 25% of its electricity from renewable resources by 2025. It has already identified 22 eligible solar and five geothermal contractors, and plans to select potential biomass suppliers by the end of the year.
