Collaborative Solutions for Today and Tomorrow
When it comes to environmental responsibility, we are all in this together. And sometimes, that means lending a helping hand.
We set our sustainability program and reduction goals to align with government, industry and society expectations. Many of our clients are required to meet the goals established in U.S. Executive Order 13423 and Executive Order 13514. We orient our policies and targets with these executive orders to enable our customers to achieve compliance.
We offer an entire portfolio of solutions and systems integration capabilities to agencies, cities and countries who might be facing energy and resource challenges related to energy, climate change, land use, water conservation, waste reduction, and other environmental and safety aspects. For details on these products, programs and services, visit Supporting Our Nation’s Energy and Climate Challenges.
Here are a few examples of how we are joining forces to meet our mutual sustainability goals:
Space-Based Climate Monitoring
Lockheed Martin is designing and building the next-generation Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R-Series (GOES-R) for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). GOES-R system data will improve weather forecasting quality and timeliness, thereby generating national economic benefits related to climate monitoring, ecosystems management, commerce and transportation.
Renewable Energy Technology
Our WindTracer® is a Doppler lidar sensor used to characterize wind resources over large spatial areas from a single location. Its reliable data lowers investment risk and improves the accuracy of wind energy production predictions. It can be used to monitor air pollution, research weather, detect wildfires and smoke.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) technology leverages the ocean’s natural thermal gradient to generate power. This process can serve as a baseload power generation system that produces renewable, non-polluting power that is available 24/7 … an ideal solution for shore-side military bases and tropical communities.
Lockheed Martin teams are researching, designing and producing next-generation solar energy solutions. Leveraging our systems engineering expertise, we are using proven technology to develop large-scale photovoltaic and concentrated power solutions that use the sun’s energy to create utility-scale, grid-ready electricity.
Wave and Tidal Energy
We are leveraging decades of experience in designing and developing maritime systems into wave and tidal power systems. Through strategic relationships with key wave and tidal power technology providers, we are providing the expertise to help make the systems work in harsh ocean environments and scalable for large-scale production.
Intelligent Microgrid Solutions provide an efficient, reliable and secure energy system that integrates existing power generation assets with new or existing renewable power sources and manages energy demands, whether connected or independent of a utility power grid. This power system will support mandates to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase the use of renewable energy, while reducing energy costs.
Smart Energy Enterprise Suite
Our Smart Energy Enterprise Suite (SEEsuiteTM) provides our customers with readily available data to better understand and respond to rising energy demands at their facilities. One tool in the suite, SEEviewTM, provides real-time energy awareness by integrating key operations and business systems, thereby enabling facility managers to effectively manage assets. SEEviewTM is currently being rolled out to our top 10 energy consuming sites, enabling us to better control energy usage and costs within our own operations, as well as creating a learning opportunity to share with our customers.
Federal Government Energy Solutions
Lockheed Martin is helping the federal government reduce its energy costs and environmental impact through increased energy efficiency, additional use of renewable energy and improved utility management decisions at federal sites. Under the Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), the U.S. Air Force selected Lockheed Martin as partner in the development of Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. As one of the nation’s largest implementers of energy efficiency programs for utility customers, our team saved this project more than 550 million kWh and 5 million terms of natural gas – which is equivalent to the energy used in 52,000 homes.
