"The alliance draws on Boeing's expertise in providing the DOD with complex systems and technologies, and Siemens' industry-leading global energy-management capabilities," the two companies said in a news release.

"The Siemens and Boeing team has a vision for the United States' energy future, and we're committed to helping the DOD achieve unprecedented levels of power reliability, quality, efficiency and energy independence," said Judy Marks, head of Siemens U.S. federal business.

The companies said they plan to provide a system that:

  • Implements energy-efficiency tools allowing for analysis, control and automation of energy processes.
  • Uses smart energy controls to provide real-time data to manage energy use.
  • Integrates renewable energy sources and storage.
