The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) helps solve our nation's most challenging problems in civil and military engineering, geospatial sciences, water resources, and environmental sciences for the Army, Department of Defense, civilian agencies, and our nation's public good. Our vision is to become the world's premier public engineering and environmental sciences research and development organization.
We conduct research and development in five major areas: Military Engineering, Environmental Quality and Installations, Civil Works and Water, Resources, Geospatial Research and Engineering, and Engineered Resilient Systems.
ERDC has the experience, expertise, facilities, and relationships to provide Operational Energy solutions to the warfighter. These solutions address the development of more energy effective and efficient systems/components for contingency bases, which, in turn, will increase warfighter capabilities and military effectiveness. In addition, ERDC's Energy program provides fixed installations with expertise in energy and sustainability master planning, microgrids and distributed generation and industrial and building control systems to support efficiency and resilience in military facilities.
The ERDC Forward Operating Base - Laboratory (EFOB-L) is a pilot-scale test center for contingency basing components. EFOB-L includes the capability for individual component testing, both in isolation and within a contingency base system, with a focus on minimizing resource consumption and waste generation.
