Chief Warrant Officer Todd Coyle, Utilities Officer, 9th Communications Battalion, displays embedded metering components while the DMMS system was connected to and actively monitoring the Marine Corps' newest Advanced Medium Mobile Power Sources (AMMPS) generators at LSE 2014.

Happening Now
  • E2O recently completed an exercise demonstration of a deployable energy metering system during August 2014. At the 1st MEB Large Scale Exercise (LSE) during Integrated Training Exercise 5-14 (ITX 5-14), the USMC Expeditionary Energy Office partnered with the US Army Corps of Engineers' Engineering Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Lab (ERDC-CERL) to demonstrate a new capability to track generator performance and power production in real-time. The prototype system, the Deployable Metering and Monitoring System (DMMS), enabled the MEB's engineers to dramatically improve generator efficiency and performance over the course of the exercise.

  • The solicitation for USMC metering and monitoring solutions on is now closed. Please direct any questions to E2O at
By 2025, we will deploy Marine Expeditionary Forces that can maneuver from the sea and sustain C4I and life support systems in place; the only liquid fuel needed will be for mobility systems which will be more efficient than systems are today.
