The REDUCE program developed by the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center’s Command, Power and Integration Directorate Power Division was created to help bring the Army closer to its goal of reducing the cost and logistics burden of delivering fuel by providing a renewable energy mobile power solution which serves to enable remote power generation.

The Renewable Energy for Distribute Under-supplied Command Environments (REDUCE) is a state-of-the-art system that enables the harvesting and utilization of solar/wind power, energy storage, energy distribution and monitoring, and mobility. It is intended to produce up to 5Kw of power in the field. The system is mounted onto a Light Tactical Flat Deck Trailer, design to be able to be towed by a HMMWV. The REDUCE trailer is focused on providing an easy user friendly operation. Everything that the system needs including cabling and monitoring equipment comes with it.

Capabilities:

  • Produces up to 5Kw of power
  • Reduces fuel logistics to contingency basing
  • Supplies power where fuel sources are difficult to reach
  • Trailer houses 6-12KWh of energy storage (depending on battery chemistry)

Features:

  • System provides both AC and DC power via outlets built into the side of the trailer
  • Contains 2Kw of solar energy that can be angled using a built in mechanical tilt device
  • Trailer is also mounted with a 3.8Kw smart start generator set that only activates when needed
  • System has two wind turbines rated at 380W
